The original sentence contains an incorrect subject-verb relationship. While it may seem the subject of
this sentence is “environmental organizations, homeowners, and small business owners,” the actual
subject is the singular “lobbying effort.” Therefore, the plural verb “have” is incorrect.

(A) This choice is incorrect as it repeats the original sentence.

(B) The subject-verb relationship is incorrect. While it may seem the subject of this sentence is
“environmental organizations, homeowners, and small business owners,” the actual subject is the
singular “lobbying effort.” Therefore, the plural verb “have” is incorrect. Additionally, this choice
contains the incorrect idiom “awareness about” instead of “awareness of.” The end of this sentence is
unnecessarily wordy: “pending legislation dealing with the environment.” A more concise wording is
preferable.
Awareness of is the right idiom not awareness about.

(C) While the subject-verb relationship issue is corrected by using the verb “has” to agree in number
with the singular subject “lobbying effort,” the incorrect idiom “awareness about” is used instead of
“awareness of.”

(D) CORRECT. The verb “has” agrees in number with the singular subject “lobbying effort” and the
correct form of the idiom, “awareness of,” is used. The end of the sentence, “pending environmental
legislation,” is clear and concise.

(E) The end of this choice, “environmental legislation that is still pending,” is unnecessarily wordy
