Could someone specify why B is incorrect?

Hi KHow, B uses past perfect tense (had been reduced). When two events happened in the past, past perfect is used to depict the earlier of the two events.

Here, Europe reducing to rubble clearly did not happen before the war and hence, past perfect is not justified.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses Past perfect tense, its application and examples in significant detail. If you or someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.
