Official Solution:

Widely known to be Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, are commandments those the Bible describes as having been given to the Israelites by God at biblical Mount Sinai.

A. A. to be Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, are commandments those the Bible describes as having been
B. B. as Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, is a set of commandments those the Bible describes as being
C. C. to be Ten Commandments, the Decalogue had been mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, and it described them as being
D. D. as Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, is a set of commandments that the Bible describes as having been
E. E. to be Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, are those that the Bible describes as having been


A. The idiom known to be is inappropriate. For naming, known as is correct usage. Decalogue is a set of commandments and is thus singular; the verb are does not match with the singular subject the Decalogue.

B. The participle being given is wrongly used to refer to an action that happened in the past; having been given is better.

C. The idiom known to be is inappropriate. The use of the verb had been in incorrect. The sentence implies that the action mentioned happened before the action described. The participle being is incorrect.

D. Correct. Fixes the problems above: the idiom known as is correctly used. The verb is correctly refers to the singular subject Decalogue. The participle having been is correctly used.

E. The idiom known to be is inappropriate. The verb are does not match with the singular subject the Decalogue.


Answer: D
