CAT Question a day

Directions: A part of the given sentence is underlined. Select the answer choice which is the best version of the underlined part. Option A is unchanged. Select the version which is most effectively expressed – clear and unambiguous as well as correct grammar.

Every year, the tea plantations that surround the Sangla Valley bustles with migrant workers, many of them in the area just for the season.
(A) surround the Sangla Valley bustles with migrant workers, many of them
(B) surrounds the Sangla Valley bustles with migrant workers, many of whom are
(C) surround the Sangla Valley bustle with migrant workers, many of whom are
(D) surround the Sangla Valley bustle with migrant workers, many of them
(E) surrounds the Sangla Valley bustles with migrant workers, many of them

Answer and Explanation

Answer: (C)

Explanation:

This is question that is based on subject-verb agreement. The noun ‘plantations’ is plural, therefore we need to use the plural verb (surround). This helps us rule out options B and E. Similarly, the second verb in the sentence needs to be bustle (plural form required by the plural noun subject).

Secondly, “Them” could refer to the fields or the workers. “Whom” must refer to people, so is unambiguous: choose (C).
