deepudiscover No, "support of" is correct. You can provide support to someone or something, but if we're not dealing with a verb (provide, lend, etc.), we use "of."

rocko911 "Only ___ when" isn't redundant. For instance, we can say "It only hurts when I laugh" or "You should only eat when you're hungry." However, "after when" is definitely redundant, or just wrong. Which one is it? After or when?

proper structure :

X developed only after Y.

Of course with the given choices, the structure that you have mentioned in correct.

However, both the following constructions are correct:

X developed only after Y

X developed only when Y

However, we definitely cannot say that X developed only after when Y.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

(D) develops only at the time after the supporting of civil rights legislation by Harry Truman

look at e
after is a preposition and after "after", it is logic to show a point of time, and not logic to show a period. in E, a period is shown after "after". this is not logic. E is gone.

consider

after I am learning english, I go out for change.

this is not logic.

this kind of meaning error, similar to other meaning error, can be found if we use our common sense of this world. a concept is so simple but fatally important.
