We are talking about a party so it is singular... A-D POE
Lets check the timing then:
Campaing > assumption > realization
So B-E are out because they missed the correct timing
so C is the one.

The event "have the results in its favour" did not occur at a particular point in past. In fact the event never took place - it was a hypothetical event assumed by the campaign team. Hence subjunctive "have" is alright, but simple past "had" is wrong. (Note that "have" is NOT used as simple present, but as subjunctive - "would have" instead of "have" would also be alright, because then the tense "would have" would depict a point in future WITH RESPECT TO the past event "indulge".)

Correct. Assuming that I win, I celebrated. (subjunctive)
Correct. Assuming that I would win, I celebrated. (future with respect to a point in past)
Wrong. Assuming that I won, I celebrated. (This is wrong, if the results were not declared.)

I have a small doubt here....Assumption is always taken from the past.....So is the usage of present tense valid here?

Assumption can be about an event in past, present or future. All the following examples are correct:

You may assume that Arvind ate the cake.
You may assume that Arvind will eat the cake.
You may assume that Arvind eats the cake.

Hi sayantanc2k

Could you please explain what is wrong with option E here? Why is the usage of the word "has" wrong?

Thanks

Simple present is used for events that happen in general. Example: I go to work everyday.

In option E, simple present "has" is wrong, because "having the result in favour" is not something that happens in general. The event is either a desire (subjunctive "have") or an event in future from the perspective of past (conditional "would have").

Hi

But party is singular...how can we use "have" when party is singular?

Thanks In advance
