Hi

Confused b/w "C" & "D"..?? Here is the reason why "D" is correct.

>> the historians suggestion is still occurring (present perfect tense), the past perfect tense “had evolved” is not appropriate, and should simply be the simple past tense “evolved.” Therefore "C" is incorrect

OR

The use of past perfect tense is C because 'impressionism had evolved' and 'photography allowed' are not two related events in past and so sequencing of these events is not required and simple past tense will suffice...

Moreover if we use past perfect tense it gives a wrong sense that impressionism evolved earlier as it is mentioned in past perfect tense form than photography - this actually changes the meaning because impressionism evolved in response to photography.

Why not C)

I guess there is a sequence of the events and "had" is required.

I thought this is a case with command subjunctive because of the word Suggest. In that case the verb should be evolve, in D. Isn't it?

1. Take away A and C -- had evolved.
2. Take way E - to have evolved

Between B and D I chose D
