    First you need to understand how verbs agree with eachother. It also helps to take out the other random stuff in the sentence.

Simplifying the sentences like so can help you better understand and pick out the right one. Usually it is the one that sounds the best. Which one do you think it is?

    The verb has to agree with the subject. for B seems is plural and the subject is plural also. B is not correct.

    Italy is a singular country.. use is a singular verb. it would need to be uses. D isn't correct.. try again!! :)
