D is wrong because "attempt at" is wrong idiom

the right idiom is "attempt to"


I don't think 'attempt at' is a wrong idiom, e.g. my first attempt at GMAT. I agree with ASTHANAP; it feels right.

Well I selected A for the similar reasons.

Isn't A ambiguous about the timing of the attempt? Begun could modify the Equal Rights Amendment or the attempt.

my Answer is A . As the sentence starts with An attempt , hence it requires to here .

Also the verb tense is past tense is required here as past participle is used in non underlined portion of the text to give correct sequence of events
