Although Napolean's army entered Russia with far more supplies [u]than they had in their previous campaigns,[\u] it had provisions for only twenty-four days.
A) same as underlined
B) their previous campaigns had had,
c) they had for any previous campaign,
D) in their previous campaigns,
E) for any previous campaigns,
I have no doubt with the answer, but as per the solution provided by the GMAC, in options a and c, the verb should be had had. First HAD to show possesiveness and the second HAD to show the sequence of events. Now my doubt is that if there is already a word PREVIOUSLY to show the sequence of event, then is it really necessary to use the second HAD?
