c doesn't make sense. "did not understood". has to be D.

B, both the actions are happening in past, telling and acting.

My vote for D.
I believe the sentence needs to be in present.

Straight D. Only C and D are close; C makes it past tense while the sentence implies that the ACT of NOT understanding coincides with the act of her telling not to call her up.

Another vote for D. It should not be " did not UNDERSTOOD her" but " did not UNDERSTAND her".

phones ... tells. .. acts...

leaves us with C and D

has not understood is correct usage

did not understand is correct usage

Hence D

I do not have the OA. However I think it is D.

D denotes the fact that he did not understand her when she said it and that he still does not understand her in the present tense. The fact that he does not understand her causes him to currently act as if he has not understood her.

that's subjunctive mood. C has a tense mismatch. acts and understood.

got the grammer structure for "as if": subj + verb(present)+ as if + subj+ verb(past).....


so it confirms D is wrong and only C stands with it.

"has + PP" doesnot not fulfill the subjunctive requirement. needs "were".

I also think that D is correct. My side of reasoning is - since sentence begins in present tense so it needs to maintain present tense through out unless there is real need, i.e. to give more clarity etc....

D conveys the same without getting into another tense.

Good thing fistail. the rule is fine. but did not understOOd should be typo in order for the answer to be C.
I would go with C if the tenses used is fine.

do you think GMAT Prep has typo...?

i also did not get you.

i mean the tense should be in past.

though "as if" is not typically covered in gmat.
