C is the answer. The sentence consists of a list, and C maintains the parallelism.

I think it's A. Whether everyone should be followed by benefits not benefit.

The OA should be A, for the following reasons-

A. Correct pattern of joining two parts with as well as and the two parts are also parallel

B. The pattern is not correct. ( ......and....,......,and)

C, D, E.... incorrect because it uses plural form of the word "benefit". Everyone, each, everything is always followed by singular form of verb.

IMO A.

The noun everyone takes singular verb benefits. So should be option A or B.
Option A has parallel structure. So, IMO option A is right

IMO OA should be A.
B breaks the list (and missing) and C,D and E are having SV error.

Everyone is Singluar, hence benefits is the appropriate choice here. C, D and E are out
Between A and B, A is the clear winner.

VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:



Anytime you have a choice relating to subject-verb agreement such as “benefit” vs. “benefits”, start by analyzing that decision point. Using the slash-and-burn technique to find the proper subject for that verb, you see that it is the singular “everyone.” it should be “Whether everyone benefits” NOT “Whether everyone benefit”. This allows you to eliminate (C), (D), and (E).

The choice between (A) and (B) is more complicated and takes some time to sort out. With such a complex structure, simplify the elements to see what is really going on. For (A) the sentence is really. “This question and this question, as well as this question and this question, are all open...” This is a properly constructed series of questions. (B) gets it wrong: “This question and this question, this question, this question, are all..” The elements are not linked logically in a parallel fashion so (B) can be eliminated. Only (A) uses the proper verb “benefits” and links together the different elements correctly, so (A) is the correct answer.
