How can we know that there should be raised instead of raising ?

See rajeshwar, since 'could' is past tense 'raised' should be used instead of 'raising'.

But I think the sentence can even be so "several issues raising in the meeting can be amicably handling".

I had another doubt in spotting errors sentence given here :

I HAD BOUGHT A BOOK YESTERDAY

Here is the example of subject verb agreement so several is plural pronoun so it take plural form of verb i.e. issue in place of issues.

Why not option B?

"at" is used to talk about group activities so I think it should be " at the metting". So option B is the correct answer.

@Mona.

Past perfect is not used in single action, so 'Had' must be deleted.
