Sentence 5: The meters are sometimes met with resistance from citizen groups; vigilantes from Alabama and Texas attempted to destroy the meters en masse.
Which of the following changes should be made to correct sentence 5?

A Change \u201Care\u201D to \u201Cwere\u201D
Explaination

In order to correct sentence 5, you would need to change \u201Care\u201D to \u201Cwere.\u201D The sentence is written in the past tense; therefore, the verb needs to also be written in the past tense. \u201CAre\u201D is a present tense verb and \u201Cwere\u201D is a past tense verb. When there are only two items in a list, you should not use a comma after the first item. The other answer options are not options that would make the sentence grammatically correct.
