We do not need to use "the fact", Eliminate D and E
We need a "that" after convinced. Eliminate B and C

Correct Option: A

Hi Optimus ,

Is it always required THAT after convinced? If no, then please explain when it it required?

Also please explain why we do not need to use fact in this sentence?

Please explain.

Many thanks in advance

Hi Kavin

"the growing numbers" are already a fact - which, by inserting "the fact" separately, makes a redundancy-error.

In regards to the "that" I will wait for Optimus' reply.

Not always. If we have CONVINCED + CLAUSE, we need "that." For example: Mike is convinced that the Warriors will win the title. (The clause is in red.)

However, if there is no clause following "convinced", "that" would not be required. For example: The prosecuting attorney convinced the jury of the defendant's guilt.
