Not all of the players

plural subject /noun so were to be used and since were is used in tense context of past events so had along in sentence is correct over has

"All" takes plural verb so we need "were".

"Team" is a collective noun so we need singular verb "its".

One after the other two actions in the past so we need "HAD". Simple past or present perfect is wrong.



Only D is error free.

(A) was on board with the new uniforms for the girls’ basketball team, but the team made their choices

(B) was on board with the new uniforms for the girls’ basketball team, but the team had made its choices

(C) were on board with the new uniforms for the girls’ basketball team, but the team made their choice

(D) were on board with the new uniforms for the girls’ basketball team, but the team had made its choice

(E) were on board with the new uniforms for the girls’ basketball team, but the team has made its choice

(D) were on board with the new uniforms for the girls’ basketball team, but the team had made its choice

(E) were on board with the new uniforms for the girls’ basketball team, but the team has made its choice


OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



D. were on board with the new uniforms for the girls’ basketball team, but the team had made its choice

First, eliminate Choices (A) and (B) because they pair the singular verb was with the plural subject all. Then eliminate Choice (C) because it uses the plural pronoun their to refer to the singular noun team. Between Choices (D) and (E), (D) is the better option. Choice (E) contains the present perfect tense “has made,” but the events take place in the past as indicated by the initial past-tense verb. Choice (D) is the winner.
