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

Amelia Earhart, the first woman who crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a solo flight, has paid a high price for her passion for aviation.

Correct!

The original sentence correctly observes Subject Verb Agreement. The singular subject Amelia Earhart is matched by the singular verb has paid.

Incorrect.

Although this answer choice is grammatically correct, this answer choice changes the meaning of the original sentence, by changing the word flight to flights. The original sentence states that there was one such flight. This answer choice states that there were at least two.

Incorrect.

Although this answer choice is grammatically correct, this answer choice unnecessarily changes the meaning of the original sentence by changing the phrase a high price to high prices

Incorrect.

By changing the singular verb has to the plural have, this answer choice creates a Subject Verb Agreement mistake.

Incorrect.

By changing the singular verb has to the plural have, this answer choice creates a Subject Verb Agreement mistake.

In addition, this answer choice is stylistically flawed and doesn't fit. By changing solo flight to flying solo this answer choice creates the awkward phrase in flying solo, which doesn't fit well into the original sentence.

a solo flight, has paid a high price 
solo flights, has paid a high price 
a solo flight, has paid high prices 
solo flight, have paid high prices 
flying solo, have paid a high price
