Picked B

But agree that since A is grammatically correct, we should not go for B which alters the meaning

a. had they known the child would be born with a disabling defect that can result in paralysis, profound learning disabilities and fluid on the brain, they might have chosen to abort the pregnancy

b. had they known the child would be born with a disabling defect that can result in paralysis, profound learning disabilities and fluid on the brain, they would have chosen to abort the pregnancy

c. they might have chosen to abort the pregnancy if they had known the child would be born with a disabling defect that can result in paralysis, profound learning disabilities and fluid on the brain

d. if they had known the child would be born with a disabling defect that can result in paralysis, profound learning disabilities and fluid on the brain, they might have chosen to abort the pregnancy

e. they might have chose to abort the pregnancy had they known the child would be born with a disabling defect that can result in paralysis, profound learning disabilities and fluid on the brain

can anyone explain what's difference between answer a and c?
when such a swap is OK and when it is not?

Thanks
Rafi

Good question
A - Correct
B - "would have " is not same as "might have"
C - " if they had known" -> incorrect (should "if they knew")
D - " if they had known" -> incorrect (should "if they knew")
E - "chose" -> incorrect, should be "chosen"
