1)A and 2) C?

in Q 1,

It has to be past tesnse because we are talking about the period prior to his death?

for Q2::
Any of --- should be singular. So options C and D are in. I chose C because there is 'been' in the sentece.

I'll go with "1" and "5".

First question requires a past-perfect tense.Second question requires "have" since the noun following "any of" is plural- "pies".

As a result of his immense talent and great vocal range, Freddie Mercury has been known as one of the world’s greatest rock singers, before he died an early death.

1.had been known as one - Putting Had we mean Freddie Mercury was one of the world
greatest rocl singer before his death and not after that.
2. has been known as one - continues into the present.
3. is being seen as one
4. has been one
5. is seen as one

Ans . 2

Has any of your pies been eaten this morning?

1.Are any of your
2.Will any of your
3. Has any of your
4. Is any of your
5. Have any of your

i rewrote the sentence as : any of your pies has been eaten this morning?
though Any of is singular. The verb here depend on pies so it is Have.

Ans 5

Agreed that for 1. it should be A but as pointed out in the explanation below, sine any is used , singular verb "has" needs to be used. So I'll say C for 2...
