Sentence Correction: Subject Verb Agreement - A Complex Subject/Long Distance between Subject and Verb

The chances that a person who takes the GMAT without preparation will score highly on it is indeed very small.

Incorrect.

This answer choice is grammatically incorrect. The plural subject chances does not agree with the singular verb is.

[[snippet]]

Incorrect.

While this answer choice corrects the original Subject Verb Agreement mistake, by changing the singular verb is to the plural verb are, it is still grammatically incorrect, as the singular subject a person does not agree with the plural verb take.

Incorrect.

This answer choice repeats the original Subject Verb Agreement mistake: the plural subject chances does not agree with the singular verb is.

[[snippet]]

In addition, this answer choice creates another Subject Verb Agreement mistake: the singular subject a person does not agree with the plural verb take. It also doesn't fit into the original sentence, because it repeats the word a at the beginning of the underlined section.

Incorrect.

Although this answer choice corrects the original Subject Verb Agreement mistake, by changing the singular verb is to the plural verb are, it doesn't fit into the original sentence, because it repeats the word a at the beginning of the underlined section. 

You're right!

This answer choice corrects the original Subject Verb Agreement mistake, by changing the singular verb is to the plural verb are.

Even though this answer choice changes the wording of the original sentence (very small -> minute), this change of wording does not affect the meaning of the sentence.
