Hello,

Isn't "The majority of students ..." singular?
So i go with A.

Majority/Minority/Plurality: can be singular or plural depending on their context.

When they refer to the many parts of the totality, they are plural
When they refer to the totality itself they are singular

The majority of the members in GMATClub are going to score more than 700 in the GMAT.

The students majority is opposed to the new grade classification.

also "placing" (continuous tense is incorrect).
we are talking about future trend... (womena are expected to .... this fall.) .. so future tense is appropriate here.

Thx very much!!

A trend: what is the trend? The majority of students entering law school are women.

IMO B
