Question:

Which of these is correct, with regard to structure, grammar, and spelling?

A The investigators stated that the suspect had never violated a criminal law, but they reported a plethora of outstanding traffic tickets on his record.
explanation

In the answer beginning with "According to the...", the word less should be fewer because tickets are something you can count. In the answer starting with "While the suspect...", the verb was should be were because the subject, indications, is plural. The answer choice that begins with "From a search..." is not a complete sentence, in spite of its length. In this option, in which and from-which introduced two dependent clauses-indicate additional information that would pertain to a final needed phrase, or an independent clause, such as "only traffic violations were noted."
