The subject is plural differences; hence, we need 'have' as the verb. Ditch B, D and E, Between A and C, the relative pronoun which modifies European languages a) distorting the meaning and b) flouting touch rule. Therefore, A is the correct choice.

can you tell me "that" is referring to which noun in the sentence.


The "that" is referring to the semantic organization of European languages. So if I wanted to substitute the "that" out with what it was referring to, it would look like this:

Subject: striking differences (plural) = should have a plural verb - "have"

Eliminate B D and E

Parallelism: the semantic organization (singular) = should be parallel to the other element

Eliminate (C) because of "those"

We have (A)

3/2 split right in the beginning. Beautiful! Eliminate C/D/E, it's going to be A/B. Eliminate B on has or possibly the middle section. A is the answer!

i pick A. the semantic organization is singular so C, D and E are wrong. the differences is plural so B is wrong. by the way is it really a 700 level question??

Easy to point out IMO A.. has to be eliminated because of "differences" which leaves us with A & C, C is incorrect as "which" points to languages..

A grammar question:
If we had organization in a plural form could we use "those"?

The striking differences between the semantic organization of Native American languages and that of European
languages, in both grammar and vocabulary, have led scholars to think about the degree to which differences in
language may be correlated with nonlinguistic differences.
(A) that of European languages, in both grammar and vocabulary, have
(B) that of European languages, including grammar and vocabulary, has
(C) those of European languages, which include grammar and vocabulary, have
(D) those of European languages, in grammar as well as vocabulary, has
(E) those of European languages, both in grammar and vocabulary, has

that and those ---
those used for plural references .
Hence , that is right here .....that ---> the semantic organisation.


We are left with A, B
B is out due SVA

Subject is plural . so verb required is plural

Thanks
Abhi
Kudos appreciated .

In that of vs those of, that of is correct is it refers to "semantic organization", which is singular. Hence, C,D & E are eliminated.

In A&B, there is difference in has vs have. Since "striking differences" is plural, "have" is right.

Idiom "Between X and Y" C, D and E violates the idiom because "those" can't refer back to "the semantic organization"
SV agreement issue with B: "Striking difference... has?" is incorrect

A is the answer

Striking differences need Have so only A and C are left

In C there is no plural reference of Those so C out

A remains
