Official Solution:

The artist’s most recent work, a series of canvasses splashed liberally with acrylic paint in primary colors, is extraordinarily popular with interior designers specializing in hotels.

A. primary colors, is
B. primary colors is
C. primary colors, are
D. primary colors are
E. colors, are primarily


The sentence is testing the ability to connect subjects and verbs separated by parenthetical phrases. In this case, the singular subject work requires a singular verb is, and the parenthetical phrase must be set off by commas.
  1. The verb is agrees with the singular subject work, and the entire parenthetical phrase is set off by commas.
  2. The parenthetical phrase is not correctly set off by a comma after colors.
  3. The verb are is plural and does not agree with the singular subject work.
  4. Are is a plural verb that does not agree with the subject work, and there is no comma after colors separating the parenthetical phrase.
  5. This phrase uses commas correctly, but the verb are does not agree with the subject work, and the sense of the sentence has been changed.

Answer: A

It must be testing what you say it does, but is GMAT testing it?

Of course, relating the subject to its verb ("eliminate the middlemen and skip the warm up" as a popular guide mentions) is one of the basic concepts that GMAT tests.

Do we know that "work" is singular because it says "series" of canvases ? From what I know, work can be used as both singular or plural.

why can't we take "The artist’s most recent work" as the modifier for " a series of canvasses". Doesn't this make sense and option 2 is also correct.
