(A) doubted that Troy had ever existed
sounds the best
(B) doubt that Troy has ever existed
wrong tense
(C) were in doubt as to the existence of Troy
sounds awkward
(D) were doubtful concerning Troy’s existence
sounds awkward


For the same reason A. :wink:

Yeah I go with A

I discarded A on the basis of this:

There is little doubt that...
There is a doubt whether.....


When 'doubt' is used in negative sense, it is followed by 'that'
Otherwise it is followed by 'whether'

Please let me know what you think of it?
