Hi

Correct answer should be D, as "have had" is used to connect past to present which is not the intent of this sentence, hence option A and B are not correct. Typically is an adverb and should be placed close to "had" hence option C D are also incorrect

Hi,
I am also marking 'D' option only. But the construction of the sentence is in the past form.

Hi All,

In a period of time when women typically have had a narrow range of choices, Mary Baker Eddy became a distinguished writer and the founder, architect, and builder of a growing church.

Image

Let us begin by understanding the meaning of this sentence. Mary Baker became a distinguished writer and the founder, architect, and builder of a growing church at a time when women typically had very few choices.

Image

Now let’s spot the errors in the original choice:
1. This sentence is giving us general information about Mary Baker and the time when she did something. All the events must be written in simple past tense. Use of present perfect tense “have had” is incorrect.

Now let’s do the POE to find out which answer choice rectifies these errors:

A. In a period of time when women typically have: Incorrect for the reason discussed above.

B. During a time in which typically women have: Incorrect. Same verb tense error as in choice A.

C. Typically, during a time when women: Incorrect. Here “typically” is modifying “time”. This is not the intended modification.

D. At a time when women typically: Correct.

E. Typically in a time in which women: Incorrect. Same modification error as in choice C.

Hope this helps.
Thanks
Shraddha

My answer is D as well.

A & B - "Have" is incorrect.
C &E have weird construction.
