Question 30: Even as the fans fight between themselves, the captain, as well as the players, are anxious about the upcoming match.
The correct preposition to be used in the given context is 'among' or 'amonsgt', as we are talking of a group of people- fans- and not distinct individuals.
Note that the preposition 'between' is used to refer to one-to-one relationships, and 'amid', meaning in the middle of, to mass nouns.
Also, the subject of the sentence is 'the captain' (singular). The phrase 'as well as the players' is in parentheses. This provides extra information, but is not part of the subject. So, the verb is 'is', not 'are'.
The question is " Choose the grammatically correct option "
Choice D is the correct answer.
