A. is that some specimens, like a skeleton of Stegosaurus armatus found nearly a century ago, has metacarpals articulated (What about “has”? Is it correct)
B.is some specimens, such as a skeleton of Stegosaurus armatus found nearly a century ago, have metacarpals articulating (We generally avoid –ing form when we can)
C. was that some specimens, such as a skeleton of Stegosaurus armatus found nearly a century ago, had metacarpals articulated (I find “was that” correct. Why do you think it is wrong?)
D. had been that some specimens, like a skeleton of Stegosaurus armatus found nearly a century ago, have metacarpals articulated (What about “had been”. It the tense correct)
E. is that some specimens, such as a skeleton of Stegosaurus armatus found nearly a century ago, having metacarpals articulated (What does “having metacarpals articulated” means?)

Just look at the "TENSES" to solve this question.

sentence says "Skeleton of Stegosaurus armatus found nearly a century ago" which is in Past tense.

this requires HAD & not have / has.

It's straightforward C

Thoughts? :-D



when we are talking about views we need a "that" here, so we can straightaway eliminate choices that dont have "that" - eliminate B

we have an example of skeleton here and we only use "such as" to give examples hence eliminate choices with "like" - eliminate A,D

Issue with D- Had been (although I would not out rightly eliminate a choice just because it has "been" ) +have can not work together - so eliminate this choice.

Its not so difficult to choose between C and E.

if you closely look at the 2nd half of the sentence E doesnt have a verb. "Having" is incorrect and does not serve as a verb here. so eliminate E.

C is the correct answer.
