My Choice is C. I cornered down to A or C, and I found C better.

Welcome to the Club!

C it is. from...to is the correct usage. They were forced to move from one place to another.

no need of present perfect participle in D. we are simply talking of Past. Simple past tense will suffice.

E is simply awkward.

Past perfect is not required in B. We are not taking of past in past. Simple past tense is needed.

Sample sentence of Past Perfect [#permalink] New post 07 Aug 2004, 07:36
DJ,

I always get confused: "Past perfect" Vs "Past Tense."

When do we use "Past Perfect"?What do you mean by "We are not talking of past in past"?Can you also give me a sample of "Past perfect" sentence?Thank you.Rgds,

Anna

from my note:

Past perfect:
The Past Perfect expresses the idea that something occurred before another action in the past. It can also show that something happened before a specific time in the past.

eg:
I had never seen such a beautiful beach before I went to Kauai.
Had you ever visited the U.S. before your trip in 1992?

see, in these, the sequence is: saw a beautiful beach --> went to kanaui --> discussing it now. 1st happened before 2nd, which too happened in past. (this is what I call "past in past")

Simple past tense:
something completed in the past and is over now.

eg:
I went to zoo yesterday.
she cooked food.
I lived in chile for 3 years.

Take the above SC for eg: we are discussing something that happened in past and has ended. simple past.
