B is wrong. The question is pretty bad though, shouldn't it end with "hoped to find?" or maybe "hoped to have found"

Well. I agree that E is clumsy 'cause of "his". But I dont know how to eliminate D


Haha :lol: ..Thank you for your patient!

So "since Robert Boyle" is correctly use. Actually it sounds strange to me.

That sounds strange to me too :) Nevertherless, A sounds the best here..

Could anyone explain the usage of "since Robert Boyle"?? Does it mean "the chemistry works done by Robert Boyle"? smth like that??

Thank you
