- Published on 01 Feb 17

a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 2
 
Replace 'has' with 'have'. 'A great many' should always followed by a 'plural noun' and 'plural verb'.

The correct sentence should be: A great many students have been declared successful.

Same rule applies for,

Many, A great many, A good many
e.g. A great many girls are standing there.
