Can you explain why C is correct?

IMO the answer should be A.

Answer C.

Possible explanation Why Answer A is incorrect- 'After' expresses that something has already happened in the past and also first clause contains a time period (1984) which is again in past, so therefore usage of 'Had' creates ambiguity.

This is why I chose answer C.

Thanks :-)

Also though and but uses in the same way make it ambigous...

A Walter Mondale had a long difficult struggle leading up to the 1984 Democratic Presidential Primary, though he consolidated his lead for the nomination, but he won only- Though and But together are causing redundancy. Both though and but are used to present contrast.

B Having had a long difficult struggle leading up to the 1984 Democratic Presidential Primary, Walter Mondale still consolidated the nomination lead, only winning- Only winning is modifying Walter Mondale, but the usage is incorrect. "Winning" is neither presenting the How aspect nor providing cause and effect.

C After a long difficult struggle leading up to the 1984 Democratic Presidential Primary, Walter Mondale consolidated his lead for the nomination, but he won only- Correcto.!

D A long difficult struggle leading up to the 1984 Democratic Presidential Primary, Walter Mondale, consolidating his lead for the nomination, but he won only- The opening modifier A long difficult struggle is modifying the noun " Walter Mondale". W.M is not a long difficult struggle.

E Walter Mondale had a long difficult struggle leading up to the 1984 Democratic Presidential Primary, consolidated his lead for the nomination, and only won- The contrast is lost in this sentence. The intended meaning was that even though W.M. consolidated his lead, He won only 13 elections
