Inflation has made many Americans reevaluate their assumptions about the future; they still expect to live better than their parents have, but not so well as they once thought they could.

(A) they still expect to live better than their parents have
(B) they still expect to live better than their parents did
(C) they still expect to live better than their parents had
(D) still expecting to live better than their parents had
(E) still expecting to live better than did their parents

I am going for B.

Sentences separated by semi-colon should be able to stand on their own. This eliminates D and E
There is no need for a progressive tense here. Hence A and C out.

B.

good trick :) SM176811, you wanna the reader to read/look carefully to your post with answer!

D, E out.

B is simple past tense, as the rest of the clause they once thought they could.
