As many of others have posted, since we have timelines defined for each action, do we need past perfect tense here?

Also what is better, Just because of vs The fact that???


In A, the verb "did not mean" does not have a subject - "just because.." is a dependent clause and cannot be the subject of a verb. Hence A is wrong.

"The fact" is a noun and can be subject of the verb "did not mean". Hence B is alright.

Since years are mentioned, simple past would be better.

Just because King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886 did not mean that he also won the loyalty of its citizens: the invading Danes were well aware of this weakness and used it to their advantage in 893.
Bold one happened before 'the invading Danes were well aware of this weakness and used it to their advantage in 893.'

A, C, D out


(A) Just because King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886 did not mean that he
(B) The fact that King Alfred had occupied and fortified London in 886 did not mean that he had
Correct.
(C) Just because King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean he
(D) The fact that King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean that he
(E) Just because King Alfred had occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean he <won>
'had' missing

(A) Just because King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886 did not mean that he

(B) The fact that King Alfred had occupied and fortified London in 886 did not mean that he had

(C) Just because King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean he

(D) The fact that King Alfred occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean that he

(E) Just because King Alfred had occupied and fortified London in 886, it did not mean he


Imo B

I really struggled with this one.
My explanation is as follows.
That is a relative modifier modifying fact in this sentence. The modifier is giving us extra information about the noun " The fact". If we remove modifier then we can easily see that the answer has be B.
