I am little confused with certain options and their official explanations; thus a take from the experts is welcomed here.

Hi vabhs192003, I will provide my 2 cents on the OA.

1. Viewers of our morning talk show have often turned - This is in the present perfect tense, and this means action is still going on.
2. Generally words such as who, whom, where, which modify the preceding noun. In Opinions A,B and C - This modifies program, but the intention is to modify guests.
So A,B and C are eliminated.

Coming to D and E. D uses "SAW" which is simple past. But the first part says that the action is still happening. So E is the OA.

I solved it like this :

Have must have 3rd form of the verb. So, A, B and D are out as they are using the 2nd form of the verb.

Out of C and E now,

In C, who illogically modify program. Remember who MUST be used to modify People. So, C is out.

hence, E.

From proofreading.ie website:

Saw is the PAST TENSE of the verb see, and usually comes immediately after NOUNS and PRONOUNS.

USAGE: saw : This word is a stand-alone VERB.

Seen is the PAST PARTICIPLE of the VERB see.
Generally, seen is used alongside have, has, had, was or were in a sentence to make COMPOUND VERBS.

1st split:

Pronoun's means Noun + IS.

Who's .... is wrong in this context.

A B C are out.

Have often turned on ... and (have) seen .....

D is out.

E wins.

I got correct, but still I haven't got proper knowledge of the usage of "with" grammatically. Any source recommended?
