Hi, Amir Morgan,

My uncle ............................. as a sales manager for twenty years, but now he has his own business.

A had worked

B is working

C has worked

D worked

Our book says "had worked", but I think it is " worked" because the action is ended. It is confusing.

I see that 'worked' is the correct answer here. The past perfect is always related to the past, not the present. To use the past perfect correctly in your example, you need to relate it to another past action.

- My uncle had worked as a sales manager before he retired.
