Since the movie was released, seventeen UFOs have been sighted in the state, which is more than had been sighted in the past ten years together.
A. which is more than had been sighted
B. more than had been sighted
C. more than they had sighted
D. more than had reported sightings
E. which is more than had reported sightings
Agree with B. A is out for using which, and so E is also out. C is out for they, not clear who they refers to. D is completely screwed up, more than had reported sighting, who had reported? and had reported sightings is unidiomatic.
Also, B keeps the agreement, have been sighted..........had been sighted. Had is needed to refer to time prior to the movie release and the sighting that occured since the movie release.
