IS IT B

had done is not used with the phrase "not until+past time"

in D, to be aware modify the subject, not logic

" They " - doesn't have a clear antecedent , so I will go with (D) ...

Whats the OA ?

IMO : D

Not until Hammurabi’s Code was enacted, had a government granted the right to its citizens that they could be aware of their laws.

(A) had a government granted the right to its citizens that they could be aware : granted ...that they could be aware (wrong)
(B) did a government grant the right to its citizens that they could be aware : government grant...that they could be aware(Wrong) . I dont think 'they' is an issue here. It clearly refers to citizens
(C) had the government granted the right to its citizens for the awareness : for the awareness (Wrong)
(D) did a government grant the right to its citizens to be aware Correct
(E) had the government granted that its citizens had a right that they could be aware : Use of 'Had' twice is clearly wrong

Why is the usage of 'Had' after the comma wrong ? The actions seem to be related. We have the usage of 'Until' which tells me Past perfect can be used.
Anyone ?
Many Thanks

Plz find the attachment added timeline representation of the scenario discussed..

Not until Hammurabi’s Code was enacted -----> Means a point in the past which has a clear timeline antecedent....


|Government didn't allow right to its citizens to be aware of the laws|------|Hammurabi’s Code was enacted|------|Present|--------------> |Future|

Clearly the untill + verb-ed refers to some incident in the past and thus doesn't require a Past Perfect Tense...

Hope I cud explain my thought process...

(A) had a government granted the right to its citizens that they could be aware
(B) did a government grant the right to its citizens that they could be aware
(C) had the government granted the right to its citizens for the awareness
(D) did a government grant the right to its citizens to be aware
(E) had the government granted that its citizens had a right that they could be aware

OA after three attempts


The government granted the rights post the code was enacted - had is incorrect - knock out A, C & E
between B & D
D is a better choice - concise . B has "they could" - they not required unnecessarily increasing the length. Infinitive "to" wins
Answer is D

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The first thing you have to do in this question is distinguish whether to use the simple past or the past perfect. The first part of the sentence uses the simple past. To maintain [parallel structure the second part should also. Eliminate A, C and E. can be eliminated. You have a right to something, rather than a right that. Choice D is the correct answer.
