why D is wrong?

I have read in Manhattan SC guide that if the sequence is obvious then we do not need to use past perfect.

And i guess it is obvious that the event of hoping was done before the event of discovering. :roll:

That book is good but not so good. It has a lot of errors and mistakes.

Use other sources, I would suggest.

I am using it for practice purpose only...Can you suggest any books (especially for Verbal) for practicing other than OGs , Total GMAT by Jeff Sackmann (For Maths) and 1037 questions by Princeton ?

I reckon one should stick with official guides with verbal. I mean Verbal is not as concrete as math is , You can verify answers in math but not in verbal you have to take authors word for it.

I would suggest using OG , official verbal guide2 , and buy extra 200 questions in gmat test prep software.

Shouldn't it be D?


Hi D can not be the answer as it does not establish the timeline required in the sentence .
When two events happened in the past we have to show which event happened first .
So use of had is required
Hope it helps .

Isn't it obvious? And when it is shouldn't we skip the perfect tense?
