(A)Why painting the face and perfuming the body should have persisted
(B)How painting the face and perfuming the body could be persistent
(C)That painting the face and perfuming the body are persisting
(D)Painting the face and perfuming the body persisting
(E)The persisting of face painting and body perfuming


This SC was discussed some time ago ...I remember OA is B . This SC tests the meaning rather than grammar.

D: the use of "persisting" is unsuitable.
E: "the persisting" should be "the persistance"
C: the tense is not logical due to "recorded history" which suggest sth must happen in the past.

B is better than A due to the use of tense.

B it is.


I think this question is poorly constructed; none of the choices seem correct.

I would think that "painting the face" and "perfuming the body" would take on the verb of "have been".....

I think A uses the appropriate tense to mention an event that might have taken place.

so A is the right choice.
