Official Solution:

Group climate, as well as individual affective factors, such as motivation and attitude, are often quoted to be potential determinants in applying critical or non-critical thinking behaviors in learning processes.

A. , as well as individual affective factors, such as motivation and attitude, are often quoted to be potential determinants in applying
B. and also individual affective factors, such as motivation and attitude, are often quoted as potential determinants to apply
C. , as well as individual affective factors, like motivation and attitude, are often quoted as potential determinants to apply
D. , along with individual affective factors, like motivation and attitude, are often quoted as potential determinants in applying
E. and individual affective factors, such as motivation and attitude, are often quoted as potential determinants in applying

(A) “are” - plural verb does not match “Group climate as well as individual factors” - singular subject. Quoted to be - non idiomatic.

(B) X and also Y structure is incorrect - in presence of "and", the word "also" is redundant. Moreover "to apply" sounds intentional rather than conveying the intended meaning (Part of learning process).

(C) Subject-verb agreement error as in A and infinitve ("to apply") error as in B are repeated. Additionally this sentence introduces a new error with improper usage of "like" instead of "such as" to show examples.

(D) Subject-verb agreement error as in A and improper usage of "like" as in C are repeated.

(E) Correct: fixes all the errors mentioned above.

Hey guys,

Considering choice A, can someone explain me the reason behind “Group climate as well as individual factors” being singular? Are all combinations of "X as well as Y" singular? Or does it depend on the plurality of X?

Thanks

The phrase "as well as Y" is a modifier of "X" and does not change the number of X.
