A.calculus, attributed to English mathematician Issac Newton, may have been an invention of Gottfried Leibniz, a German mathematician who was Newton's contemporary
(may have been invention of - incorrect use. We are talking about past event and are not sure about the second event. it is ok to use simple past)
B.calculus, English mathematician Issac Newton's attribution, may have been an invention of Gottfried Leibniz, a German mathematician who was Newton's contemporary
(may have been invention of - incorrect use. We are talking about past event and are not sure about the second event. it is ok to use simple past)
C.calculus that was attributed to English mathematician Issac Newton may have been an invention of Gottfried Leibniz, a German mathematician who was Newton's contemporary - (use of "that" fills the possible gap but still have error -may have been an invention
D.calculus that was once attributed to English mathematician Issac Newton might be an invention of Gottfried Leibniz, a German mathematician who was Newton's contemporary - correct. Short and best answer. Removes the error and doesn't introduce any new one.
E.English mathematician Issac Newton's calculus, attributed to him may have been an invention of Gottfried Leibniz, a German mathematician who was Newton's contemporary. - (attributed to him may have been an invention - incorrect use of sentence, changes the meaning of the sentence.

Hi pushpitkc,

I am still confused if A is the right answer. Bcz I think all Choice have some flaw.
I do agree that in D - use of "that" is incorrect. But in A - we are using (may have been an invention of Gottfried Leibniz).
Is this correct. Can you please elaborate?
Also can you please let us know the source of the question.
