Please explain why D is wrong


Option D is incorrect because of the use of WILL. Option D conveys that someone knew for sure in the PAST that one event is going to happen.

Was that person Nostradamus??? I guess your answer would be NO

B Having been imprisoned on suspicion of supporting Protest rebels during the reign of Mary I of England, the same Elizabeth will later accede to the throne.
C Imprisoned during the reign of Mary I of England on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels, the same throne later fell to Elizabeth herself.
D During the reign of Mary I of England, the same Elizabeth who will later accede to the throne was imprisoned on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels.
E Having been imprisoned during the reign of Mary I of England on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels, the throne later fell to the same Elizabeth.


A - No grammatical errors. Keep.
B - We don't need the present perfect tense, OUT
C - The same throne was not imprisoned. OUT.
D - 'Will' indicate future tense, but we're talking about the past here. OUT
E - Same as B, with an absurd subject i.e. the throne. OUT.

A is the right answer.

The modifier "During the reign of Mary I of England" is correctly modifying the noun "Elizabeth" in option A, and the rest of the sentence has not grammatical errors.

B - Incorrect usage of - "Having been"
C - Changes the meaning
D - Incorrect usage of - "will"
E - Changes the meaning

Answer is A

The original sentence is correct as it is- it can sound awkward when you are reading the sentence clause by clause- but sometimes when you read the whole sentence quickly or in one clean swift then it makes a lot more sense.

Good one, I like how the pronouns are played with:
During the reign of Mary I of England, the same Elizabeth who would later accede to the throne was imprisoned on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels.

My first reaction was what 'same Elizabeth'? So I guess I will have to pick the best of the lot

A During the reign of Mary I of England, the same Elizabeth who would later accede to the throne was imprisoned on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels. Keep - overall it makes sense. It generally feels its been taken from a paragraph or sentence which had an antecedence to it
B Having been imprisoned on suspicion of supporting Protest rebels during the reign of Mary I of England, the same Elizabeth will later accede to the throne.Is she still in prison? (Past perfect usage not needed)
C Imprisoned during the reign of Mary I of England on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels, the same throne later fell to Elizabeth herself. Nope, the throne was not imprisoned. A 'same Elizabeth was'.
D During the reign of Mary I of England, the same Elizabeth who will later accede to the throne was imprisoned on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels. Awkward description of events - the imprisoning should follow Elizabeth not the throne ascension
E Having been imprisoned during the reign of Mary I of England on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels, the throne later fell to the same Elizabeth.Again,the throne was not imprisoned:)
