King Alfred fortified London BEFORE the danes arrived. So we need past perferct here. This leaves us with B and E. E is clearly wrong.

Thus B.

The correct idiomatic usage of Just Becasue is - Just because X doesn't mean that Y ( options A, C and E rejected ; 3:2 split )

(A) Just because King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886 did not mean that he - Incorrect
(C) Just because King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean he - Incorrect
(E) Just because King Alfred had occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean he - Incorrect

Left with 2 options -

(B) The fact that King Alfred had occupied and fortified London in 886 did not mean that he had - Correct
(886) Alfred occupied and fortified London ----------->(893) Danes invaded London
Alfred occupied and fortified London before Danes invaded London , so Had + Past Participle is correct.

(D) The fact that King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean that he - Incorrect

Hence (B) is correct !!
