I think that the correct answer is D.

"Has" is required.

B and E are out because it seems that the team is being compared to "last year", not its own last year's performance.

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

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.
