With courage, I am making following request which has been made by several members several times.

Do not simply post your answer, unless you are starting a new thread. Even in that case one should post their reason after couple of replies. It does not make sense to ask others to guess your reason.

No pun intended....Offense?? Not at all....

"credited with" is an idiom.

please anyone can elaborate all the choices. OG explanation is not helpful.
OG explanation:
Choice A is the best. In this sentence, where credit(ed) is used as a verb, the idiom in English is to credit
something with having had some effect. Thus only choice A is idiomatic. Both/or (in B and D) and to (in C) can
be used idiomatically when credit is a noun, as in "Picasso gave credit to African art for having had a strong
influence on his work." The verb form having had is used appropriately in choice A to indicate action that
occurred prior to action expressed in the simple past tense--that is, to indicate that African art had influenced
Picasso before he credited it with having done so.

atalwar,

Per my understanding, whenever you see credit or credited, the only accepted idioms are "credit with" and credit to"

So do you pick between these 2 choices

you give credit to X --- X can be your friend, your dog etc.. If you credit a person (Noun), then "credit to" is used. If the credit is given to the verb, as in this case, credit with is used.

'Credit with' is used when you are doing something

'Credited to' money related in a/c

Given credit for being ones…who

Hope it help

Credited for : when credit is not a verb but a noun.
For example: she received credit for her good work.
In the question, credited is used as a verb so we can't use 'credit for' here.
Eliminate option B and D
Credited to is used when Credit is used as a verb: 'Credit X to Y'. Eg: The bank credited \$1 billion to your account.
Credited with is used when Credit is used as verb: 'Credited Someone with something'. Eg: Your account has been credited with \$1 billion.

Nice info................i want to add some more.

a) Credited with:- used when we credit a person with accomplishments (We often uses this when a person comes first)

ex:- Newton is credited with the discovery of Gravity

b) Credit to:- credit accomplishments to person

ex:- The team credits its success to good Fortune.

C) Credit for:- used in terms of Credit Note

ex:- We must credit Sarah for her efforts on our behalf.
We have to credit all the rain we've had for saving the crops.

Pablo, Picasso, the late Spanish painter, credited African art with having had a strong influence on his work.

- correct as is

(B) for its having
- "its" is unnecessary.

- "credited ... to have had" = unidiomatic

(D) for having
- "for having" = wrong verb tense. "Late" Pablo Picasso means he's no longer living so we need a past tense here to show that the action is no longer happening in present.

- same as "B" (it is unnecessary). same as "C" (credited in = unidiomatic)

Quick elimination to duke it out between A & D. Ultimate decider here is the necessity of the past tense verb "had" to show that "having" is not being carried out in present day...after all, Pablo Picasso has been dead for quite a while already...

But you did not explain why is "Credited with" more suitable in this case vis-a-vis "Credited to" when Credit is used as a verb in both these cases.
