Hello, Elitstudent, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange.

one of the areas of multimedia that is growing quickly ______ overlooked is sound.

(a) yet is easily overlooked
(b) is easily overlooked
(c) it is easily overlooked
(d) that is easily overlooked

Please visit the Guidelines page, a link to which is in the toolbar at the top of this website. Your title is faulty. Also, rather than simply serving us an exercise to do, we prefer that learners state what they think the answer is or what is troubling them about an exercise. Also, please remember to use proper punctuation. In English, we capitalize the first letter of a sentence.

Both (a) and (d) are correct answers. The other two answers, (b) and (c), are ungrammatical. Because (d) uses two restrictive relative clauses in tandem—a practice which, though grammatical, is not generally taught to learners—the makers of the exercise probably want you to chose (a): "One of the areas of multimedia that is growing quickly yet is easily overlooked is sound."

Please let us know if you do not understand why the correct answer is correct.
