(B) earlier, but they were not showing no signs of the disease then
(C) earlier, no outward signs of the disease had been shown in them, however
(D) earlier without any signs of the disease shown then
(E) earlier, even though no signs of it were seen in them at that time

Hi experts,
What is the difference between (A) and (D)?

IMHO,(D) tells us that the rats died and that they showed no signs of the disease.
This meaning is quite the same as what (A) says.

Thanks

In D it is not clear who showed the signs. There is no grammatical error in D - A is better because it has more clarity than D.

In option A there is a 'had' and there is one more 'had' in the previous part in the non-underlined portion. We use 'had' to show when one action is done after another.
