C was clear to me on this one.

First reading the sentence, the first verb "be generated" would sound better to me if it were "have been generated." But reading the rest of option B is incorrect. When you have an "if ... were" construction, the general rule is to use "were" instead of any other verb. This automatically eliminates all answers except C.
