I think it has tense problem... makes you think sunspots can be present on poles but no one has seen them yet...

This is Q14 of the OG 12th ed. The OA is A, however:

1. I don't understand the OE of option (C), in that "sighted is not a complete verb".

2. I don't understand the OE of the top paragraph which states "[b]The adjective visible is a complement [/b]and is parallel to the past particle sighted"

Appreciate any form of explanation. Thanks
