D it is.

'that' is actually a ornamental version of 'who'. Also the simple rule I learnt is - use 'that' for persons or things. 'Which' is used only for things.

yes it should be D.

one more reason is tense problem.

the translation was done done before "new production"

so D is perfect choice.

I'll risk A

I don't like "English version... that had been translated...". Sounds as though Beckett translated an English version instead of translating the original into English

Not sure though...

My choice is C.

Reasons
1. 'Having been modified by ...' modifies the noun it follows
2. the information with in the two commas just explains more about the noun, and it need not be a indenpendent clause as in choice D.

Thanks

D can be eliminated on the tense base...

no two actions have been done and hence there is no requirement of ''had'' here...

hope that helps !

Have fun
