Hi hasnain3047 I would like to help you out with this question

Mercedes E-class that wore four oval-shaped headlights during the past two decades, a look that had become iconic enough for the Koreans to copy on the previous Kia Amanti and the previous Hyundai Sonata, is now boasting four parallelogram-shaped lamps that look modern but still make sense on an E-class.

A) a look that had become iconic enough for the Koreans to copy on the previous Kia Amanti and the previous Hyundai Sonata, is now boasting - INCORRECT as had become past perfect tense is not required as the previous event is wore oval shaped highlights and not the look becoming iconic

B) which became iconic enough for the Koreans to copy on the previous Kia Amanti and the previous Hyundai Sonata, now boasts - INCORRECT due to usage of which . Which is incorrectly modifying two decades

C) a look that became iconic enough for the Koreans to copy on the previous Kia Amanti and the previous Hyundai Sonata, is now boasting - CORRECT as proper use of verb Simple Past tense became. Also "is now boasting" present continuous verb tense form is correctly used to denote an ongoing event in the present

D) a look that had become iconic enough for the Koreans to copy it on the previous Kia Amanti and the previous Hyundai Sonata, now boasting INCORRECT as had become past perfect tense is not required as the previous event is wore oval shaped highlights and not the look becoming iconic

E) becoming iconic enough for the Koreans to copy it on the previous Kia Amanti and the previous Hyundai Sonata and now boasting
INCORRECT due to usage of present continuous tense becoming iconic enough. Simple Past Tense is required. Also this sentence suggests that Mercedes E-Class became iconic enough whereas the look became iconic

Kindly give kudos if my explanation helped :-)
