E-"By 1492" implies Vikings entry preceded Columbus discovering the new world and therefore the past perfect tense would be proper, making E the one I chose.

'before' is used explicitly. So the past perfect tense isn't required. But is it true when we have two separate sentences ?
@Daagh/@generis - please help me here.

C. didn’t happen before and hasn’t happened....Same as A...Incorrect
D. hasn’t happened either before or......incorrect tense
E. hadn’t happened before and hasn’t happened...correct

Dear GC Verbal Experts could you please help to understand difference between C and E?
When we have 'before indicator is it necessary to use Past Perfect?
