To choose from Ã¢â‚¬ËœareÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ or Ã¢â‚¬ËœwereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I eliminated Ã¢â‚¬ËœwereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ subjunctive because it is used traditionally in expressing hypothetical situations or when you presuppose contrary to fact (eg If I were richÃ¢â‚¬Â¦). In this case Ã¢â‚¬ËœGeologists believeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and the tense is still present.
B,C, E eliminated.
between A and D, A fits the sentence Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Ã¢â‚¬Å“to have first enteredÃ¢â‚¬
