II. 'A limousine and its driver' is plural and rightly agrees with 'are'. III. 'One-fourth of the voters' is plural and agrees with the verb 'tend' but the possessive pronoun 'its' is incorrectly used instead of 'their' with 'ballots'.
IV. Either of the classic cars' is singular and not in agreement with 'are'.
Therefore, II is the correct option.
