In the question

When I met Liza yesterday, it was the first time I _____ her since Christmas.
a. saw
b. had seen
c. have seen
d. have been seen


I am confused between option A and B. I believe that since the second part of the sentence describes a simple action, I should use saw . Please help me with this.

You are using the term 'when'; that means your time of meeting Liza and your thinking that it was the first time are both simultaneous. Therefore, why will you use a past perfect for one event alone? 'Had seen' is wrong.
