A)already won twice as many games this year as did last year, even though
B)has already won twice as many games this year as last year, even if
C)already won twice as many games this year as it did last year, even if
D)has already won twice as many games this year as did last year, even though
E)has already won twice as many games this year as last year, even though

Imo E
The act of winning is still going on so we use present perfect tense .
Now we are comparing games won last to games won this year so we have set up correct comparison.

the part of the sentence "won twice as many games this year as they did last year"
We can keep the highlighted part in the sentence fully or we can drop it altogether as in E

E cannot be an answer. Two clauses should be parallel, so "did" is necessary

D

D

I pick D as well. It is clear the need of present perfect.
C is out, since "even if" distorts the meaning...
And between D and E, D makes the right comparison.

Need an expert to explain the differences

I am not sure whether this question is at 700 lvl and debatable.
Using POE, I can choose E.
Also, there is no major grammar issue, or any important pattern in the question.

Hi, I was wondering could one of you guys please explain the difference between option D and E? Like others, I opted for option D as well because I thought the comparison was incorrect in option E. Please help! Would greatly appreciate it!

I chose E- in my opinion did is a verb referrring to “won”. Given there is no other verb or subject present, there’s no need for “did”.

if the answer choice would have been "the team has already won twice as many games as it did last year, even though" . Would it be correct then?

Hello Experts

I am confused between option B and E. What is the difference between "Even if" and "even though"

Thanks

I think the correct answer choice is E;
First, because it has the has, secondly because it does not have the did, and third because even though goes with the meaning of the sentence. “Even if”changes the meaning of the sentence making the team less promising whereas the meaning is that it is promising

Although I would say the missing "it" disqualifies AC D and makes E the right choice.
