Hello, qhoc0010, could you tell me why not choice C.
I am supposed that in choice A it needs "that" to connect the noun sentence.

Thanks

You can rewrite (A) like this

Scholars who once thought Native American literatures were solely oral narratives that were recorded by missionaries or anthropologists now understand this body of work to consist of both oral literatures and the written works of Native American authors, who have been publishing since 1772.

This is just a use of participle phrase.

(D) wrongly says
Native American literatures ... now understand this body ...
It is the "Scholars", not "Native American literatures"

Although I am the only one here I think C is the answer. I think the Past perfect tense is suitable in this situation because the anthropologists once had thought one thing but now they thing something else....but I could be wrong.

It has not been discussed. chunjuwu, do you have OA for this.

Well I pick (C). Conveys proper meaning.
(A): not correct. that or "of" is missing.

Ahh... missed.. I change my answer to (A)..
(C): Past Perfect is not required because there is no any other event in Simple past.
