Official Solution:

It is possible that early American women’s rights leaders such as Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were borrowing their ideals from the women who had lived in the contemporary Iroquois Indian nations nearby.

A. were borrowing their ideals from the women who had lived
B. had borrowed their ideals from the women who had been living
C. borrowed their ideals from the women who lived
D. had been borrowing their ideals from the women who lived
E. borrowed their ideals from the women who had been living

This sentence requires the simple past tense verb forms borrowed and lived. The word contemporary makes it clear that the leaders lived at the same time as the Iroquois women. This indicates that both verbs should make use of the same simple past tense.
  1. The verb forms were borrowing and had lived display an unnecessary tense shift.
  2. The past perfect verb forms created by the word had are not necessary to the sentence.
  3. This option correctly displays parallel form between two verbs in simple past tense, borrowed and lived.
  4. Had been borrowing is an incorrect verb form.
  5. Had been living is an incorrect verb form.

Answer: C

Hi chetan2u,

Whats wrong with option E.
How can "had been living" is incorrect verb form

Had been + Present Participle = Past perfect continuous tense

Past perfect continuous tense

It is used to describe an action which continued until another past action. (It can absolutely fit in this sentence)
Can you please have a look into this
Whats going wrong.

Please assist.

IN SC WE WILL KEEP TENSE SIMPLE. IN OPTION C
This option correctly displays parallel form between two verbs in simple past tense, borrowed and lived.

Yeah but how can borrowed and lived be parallel, if two different entities performed those actions? Besides there is no parallelism marker. So yes, choice B is indeed correct, but the explanation for it should be in terms of sequence of events and not parallelism. It's just for the two entities, Leaders and Indian women, the events happened at the same time in the past, and that is why Past Simple is correct in both places.
