Option A - Incorrect
This answer choice uses a plural verb for a singular subject .... 'The market are' instead of 'the market is'.

Option B - Incorrect
This has the same issue as option A, using a plural very after a singular subject.

Option C - Incorrect
The list is not parallel to the sentence given even if there's an agreement between the subject and verb.

Option D - Incorrect
This is not parallel to the sentence given. It also has the subject-verb agreement issue.

Option E - Correct
The issue of subject and verb agreement is resolved here. 'The market', which is the singular subject agrees with the verb 'is'. Hence this answer choice is the correct answer.
