Would is needed to state a hypothetical situation so C D and E out

I will go for A because income generation will happen only after the investment.
So different verb form is needed to differentiate between two time frames.

What is the OA?

It has to be b/w C and D due to the if..then construction.

Out of the two,I chose C due to the subjunctive usage expressing unreality....if the portion...were.

i think its C only as degree of uncertainty is expressed so sub. mode is needed


Would is needed to state a hypothetical situation so C D and E out .....this rule seems to have come from apaches grammar book... :oops:

C for me

A- incorrect use of the subjunctive; ..if the capital HAD BEEN INVESTED, interest income WOULD HAVE BEEN generated
B-incorrect use of the subjunctive; idem A
C- correct: ..if the capital were invested, interest income would be generated
D- incorrect use of the subjunctive; ..if the capital WERE invested, interest income would be generated
E- incorrect use of the subjuntice; ... if the capital had been invested, interest income WOULD HAVE BEEN generated

One more vote for C. And I think querio has already explained it better than how I would have.
