IMO A
"had occupied" is wrong tense usage here
hence B,E---OUT
C-OUT as it uses "did"
as per Manhattan SC--fact that is suspicious(50:50 scenario in GMAT)--pg 192

I will go with B.

Danes used it in 893 ---> happended afer "occupied and fortified London in 886"
so you required "had occupied and forified"

A seems off. B is the best option.

OA?

I think two 'had' s make B a bit awkward

I'll go with A

B is right...yes the sentence has 2 had's.

the first had talks about king occupying and fortified london
second had about him winning the loyalty of citizens...both this event occurred in past. Hence had

Baggio..can you please post the OA?!?!

I would go with E.
A shouldnt be correct coz it doesnt have 'had'.
B seems to have problem because of including the second 'had'--winning the loyalty wasnt an event that happened before the invasion. Rather, I thought it just happened during the course of time in the past.

A. Just because King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886 did not mean that he
Not complete
B. The fact that King Alfred had occupied and fortified London in 886 did not mean that he had
This is correct
C. Just because King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886 did, it did not mean he
did, it did not - is wrong
D. The fact that King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean that he
The fact.... it did not - is not correct
E. Just because King Alfred had occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean he
Just because.... it did not is not correct

On second thoughts, it looks like A might be correct after all. Since B has "had occupied" followed by "that he had".

What's the OA?
