Mannerism, a visual arts movement from the late 1400s, has marked the end of the Renaissance period.

A. has marked
B. marks
C. have marked
D. had marked
E. marked


My issue is B vs E.
I remember doing simlar question in mgmat paper or perhaps OG.
Since we are talking about a general truth, we should use present tense. ( even though this is a sentence describing something in past)

For ex: if we say Mannerism marked the end of the Renaissance period. => Does it mean it marked earlier. Does it not mark now. ?


Hope I am clear. Can someone please clarify.

Hi,
clearly you require marked to talk of a past event..

other examples could be..
1947, year of indian independence, marks/marked the end of british rule.
marked should be correct

why should we not use PAST for general truth..
You can use present if that era is continuing know..
2000 marks the beginning of new millenium..

But if I talk of an era that is over..
1999 marked the end of 20th centuary..

Hope it helps you
