I knew that a new secondary school …………… in our village recently.

a has built          

b has been built     

c had been built     

d had built                            

My first guess when I read the sentence is that 'c' is the answer. Then, I started thinking of why 'b' is not correct. I think that because 'knew' is past and the present perfect shows a relation between what happened ' the building' and the present. Am I right?

 

I really appreciate what you do and which really helps A LOT.

You are thinking of the past, so stick to the past. The only correct answer here is: c. 'had been built'.

You mean to say: 'and that really helps .... '. (Not 'and which').
