+1 for D.

(A) the other one with a wheelchair, enters --> S-V Agreement error

(B) the other one a wheelchair, enter --> Parallel error "One with X, the other one Y"

(C) the other with a wheelchair, enters --> S-V Agreement error

(D) the other with a wheelchair, enter --> Correct, rectifies parallel error "One with X, the other with Y"

(E) one with a wheelchair, enters --> S-V Agreement error

Hence, D.

Imo-

1. The subject children is plural and must therefore take a plural verb enter
2. When we say the other , it automatically refers to the one that is left , the other one is wordy.
3. Option B distorts the meaning, according to B , the other child is a wheelchair.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This is a very simple question involving subject/verb agreement. Should it be ‘two children enter’ or ‘two children enters’? They enter (plural). That eliminates choices A, C and E. Choice B implies that one of the children is a wheelchair. Choice D is the correct answer.
