Among the given options, called off implies cancelled whereas called on refers to paying a visit to somebody. Other options are out of context and that is why they cannot be considered for this.

Certain words are always used in singular number and no plural form is there for such words. Information is an example of such word that is used only in singular number.

As the tense is correct in the sentence, the correct verb would have been ‘were’. The correct sentence would have been: The committee were divided in their opinion regarding the new regulations for the Special membership scheme.
