A. I think this one is correct. It gets the meaning across ok and I don't see any grammar problems with it.

B. Past Perfect seems unwarranted. (during her youth = past simple) There are no other past tense actions to compare against past perfect.

C. Omitting "she was" makes it unclear if he sees her being young or he sees her just like he saw her in the past when she was young.

D. This is definitely incorrect. "as she did" part makes me confused whether the author wants to say that she appears young like she was many years ago OR if she appears to him just like she appeared to him in the past when she was young.

E. Same as in D. It's not clear which of 2 options author is trying to convey.

Also, before starting the problem it's a good idea to look for answer splits. In this case, there is 3/2 split and the final 2 answer choices don't have Henry as the subject. To me it sounds awkward to use his wife as the subject since she was just an object in the first part of the sentence.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Because he sees her in a dream at a given period of in time in the past, he sees her as she was, not as she had been. The simple past is correct. There is no need to use the past perfect. Choice C is not idiomatically correct. ‘Appear’ is the wrong word to use: it changes the meaning of the sentence by implying that she may only momentarily appear. Choice A is the correct answer.
