"their" in A incorrectly refers to "N. Hoglundi". Eliminate A.

"seem as" is wrong. Correct idiom is "seem to". Eliminate A, C.

"had" in B and E is wrong since "had" means that "environment" competed experiencing some changes before N. Hoglundi did something. Eliminate B and E.

D is the correct answer

Hi Experts

1 Seems to have been and seems to be are both correct ?
2 On removing had from E will E be correct then .

I'm didn't understand this.
Dinosaur is already extinct and it stopped adapting.
'seems' is present tense... How can this be correct.
Also why it is wrong for dinosaur to start adapting after environment changes are completed?

Hi, I am no expert but let me help you out.

Seems to be is present tense. The dinosaurs are history, so we need past tense.
Seems to have been correctly uses the past tense.

Hope that helps
