Main point is to explain that China crushed a demonstration and that was so brutal that no other country has done it again since that moment of time.

has.............is perfect to indicate present perfect tense for a task that has begun in the past at one time and has its impact till now.

did..............we cant use did as it indicates verb in past tense only.

Not since Communist China crushed the democratic demonstrations at Tianenmen Square has a country so brutally denied the right of its citizens that they could speak freely.

(A) has a country so brutally denied the right of its citizens that they could speak freely
(B) did a country so brutally deny the right of its citizens that they could speak freely
(C) has a country so brutally denied the right of its citizens to speak freely
(D) did a country so brutally deny the right of its citizens to speak freely
(E) has a country so brutally denied whether its citizens had the right that they could be speaking freely

verb denied makes sense not just deny.
denied the right to do sth is correct................filtering B and D.
not denied the right of its citizens that they could speak freely as this is cumbersome.............this filters A, B and E.
Also whether spoils the meaning in E.

Dear akash.tripathi,

I see that Nevernevergiveup gave you a good response to your specific question.

I going to suggest that you are claiming a lot of time and attention from several people when you call on 20 different people for help. GMAT Club is a public forum: think about how it makes you look, one person asking for help from 20 different people at once. The 20 GMAT Club members you ask are 20 different people, each with our own habits, our own strengths, etc. etc. Spend time getting to know us a bit. While of course there is something quite appropriate about asking for help when you need help, part of that is to recognize the relationship with the people from whom you ask help, and to respect these people for the time we offer. As I am sure you understand, when you show respect, you get respect, and one of the best ways to demonstrate respect to others is to respect yourself.

Finally, you are asking many basic English language questions, which is fine. I am going to recommend this blog article:
How to Improve Your GMAT Verbal Score

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question deals with the past simple or the present perfect tenses. Because of the critical phrase ‘not since’ you have to use the present perfect. The word since demands a perfect tense, as in, since then this has been happening. It began and continues to this day. That leaves us with choices A, C and E. Choice E uses the word ‘whether’ but has no other alternative. ‘Whether’ needs two possibilities. It is also inefficient. Choice E is wrong. Choice A uses the wrong word after citizens. It is not ‘a right that they could do x’, it is a right ‘to do x’. Choice C is the correct answer.
