Some general question about Manhattan SC  [#permalink]

Hi,
I have some questions for below sentences from Manhattan SC book, hope someone can help~

1
Having passed the state bar exam, she is licensed to work like a lawyer in Illinois.
Having been shown into the office, Julia waited for the dentist to arrive.

The second sentence is correct, but why the first wrong? Is anything wrong with "having passed the state bar exam"?

2
The petroleum distillates were so viscous that the engineers had to heat the pipe by nearly 30 degrees.
This sentence is correct, but why use "had to"?

Thanks

"Had to" means "needed to". For example:

I have to go.
I have to do my homework.

Same in 2, but in past tense: engineers "had to" heat the pipe
