Ok, good qtn

Let us attack..

First of all whenever you have past perfect, we must see whethet we can have 2 sequences in the past

If yes, select those options for future POE or eliminate them

Earlier action--->------ ----------------- -----------> Later action------------------>Present ( I am writing this)
Concert Maesto relax
finished and audience went

Okie we used Past perfect only for earlier action--hence we need past perfect for the concert and audience related action

For later action, we used past tense ( and not perfect)--for masetro relax

Hence "Had relaxed" and " Concert having been finished" related options can be safely eliminated and all

All, but, C can be eliminated
