Hallo,
I am hesitating between B and D. What inclines me toward D is present perfect. The action that started in 1980 continues in the present.Additionally,allowed, IMO, should be followed by 'to". Think that it is D
may be i am wrong

My pick also is D for
- present perfect tense necessary to describe the sequence of events from 1980
-more concise and clear

hi frnds

as far as tense is considered B and D both have pres. perfect the diff is

depends on performance of market
depends on market

i think it is performance of market


and other diff is savings accounts /saving account in which i have a doubt

plz clarify

I pick B because "banks paid" which is the simple past because the act of paying higher interest rates is a action that is done and over with prior to the act. Anyone else disagree? I am looking to improve my SC hence the reason I am here

Agree with D to...
Forst it is more concise and secondly 'have' shud be there, cos it started in the past and continues in the present!

1) we need present perfect "have paid" because we have "since"

2) "allow ... to "

'D' & 'B' are quite close except the 'have' at the end.

'D' seems to be right choice

OA is D.

Good job BG. 'Since' indicates an action still continues hence we need 'have'
