According to some analysts, the gains in the stock market reflect growing confidence that the economy will avoid the recession that many had feared earlier in the year and instead come in for a 'soft landing', followed by a gradual increase in the business activity.

(A) that the economy will avoid the recession that many had feared earlier in the year and instead come
(B) in the economy to avoid the recession, what many feared earlier in the year, rather to come
(C) in the economy's ability to avoid the recession, something earlier in the year many had feared , and instead to come
(D) in the economy to avoid the recession many were fearing earlier in the year, and rather to come
(E) that the economy will avoid the recession that was feared eariler this year by many, with it instead coming

OA is A. However, why is it right? That option has past perfect (had) but there is not another event in the past.

Thank you!

Hi,
The way I approached this question, first start eliminating the wrong answer choices.
B. to avoid is incorrect, and rather , we use it to show preference; and to come alos incorrect
c. in the economy's ability to, usually ability to is incorrect on the GMAT
D. has same errors as B.
E. is just wordy and confusing,
Hope that helps.
