This is one of the most confusing traps in tense section - it is suggested that be consciously aware of this trap. The explanation already clarifies why the tenses are so. Following is another example (from Manhattan SC guide) - compare this with option A - the concept would then probably be clearer:

The band U2 WAS just one of many new groups on the rock music scene in the early 1980's, but less than ten years later, U2 HAD fully ECLIPSED its early rivals in the pantheon of popular music.


Hi, is there any additional explanation on this kind of trap somehwere? A link to a post or article would be really useful, thanks

Hi sayantanc2k,

Can u please explain why OA C is incorrect?
You have provided reasons as to why OA A could be correct, not why other answer options are incorrect. That would help!!
