Someone next door ................... heavy metal music all night long. I didn’t get a wink of sleep.

a) was playing

b) has played          

c)had been playing          

d) has been playing

I think that 'c' is the answer but 'a' is also possible.

From one of the mock exams in Egypt.

DOCV, who we miss very much on this forum and hope that he is perfectly well, sees that the only correct answer here is: a) was playing.
