I thought this is a case with command subjunctive because of the word Suggest. In that case the verb should be evolve, in D. Isn't it?

1. Take away A and C -- had evolved.
2. Take way E - to have evolved

Between B and D I chose D

Why not C)

I guess there is a sequence of the events and "had" is required.

I deleted the modifying phrase.If adds HAD before evolved,awkward and irrational.

Hi

Confused b/w "C" & "D"..?? Here is the reason why "D" is correct.

>> the historians suggestion is still occurring (present perfect tense), the past perfect tense “had evolved” is not appropriate, and should simply be the simple past tense “evolved.” Therefore "C" is incorrect

OR

The use of past perfect tense is C because 'impressionism had evolved' and 'photography allowed' are not two related events in past and so sequencing of these events is not required and simple past tense will suffice...

Moreover if we use past perfect tense it gives a wrong sense that impressionism evolved earlier as it is mentioned in past perfect tense form than photography - this actually changes the meaning because impressionism evolved in response to photography.

I was stuck between C and D.

Can you please explain why 'had' is not necessary?

Another example: I have suggested that we play basketball, but the game had evolved from the 90s to present day. Is this incorrect as well?

Yes, the sentence would be wrong. Past perfect is used only in case the two events are related to each other. For completely unrelated events (which has no bearing to each other whatsoever), the use of past perfect would be wrong.
