I, II, III
I. 'Some of the desserts' is plural and will agree with 'were'.
II. 'Your brilliant excuses' is plural and will agree with 'make'
III. When 'neither… nor' joins two subjects the verb agrees with the one closer to it. Therefore, the verb will agree with 'Jena' and will be 'has'.
IV. 'Either of us' is singular and its verb will be singular 'is'
Therefore, IV is the correct option.
