multiple choice answers

1. The production of this factory is good, which ( ) in 1989.
A. opened B. has opened C. was opened D. opening

A is correct, but the sentence is poorly written. It should read: The production of this factory, which opened in 1989, is good. The way it reads now implies that the production opened in 1989, not the factory.


2. The shop was quite new, for it ( ) only the week before.
A. had opened B. was opening C. has been open D. is opened

A is correct, but it is better to just say "opened".  "Had" is unneccessary. Opened is correct because it is past tense.

Thank you

1. The production of this factory is good, which ( ) in 1989.
A. opened B. has opened C. was opened D. opening

I can also choose C. because I regard open as a transitive verb. If I choose A, I regard it as a intransitive verb.  Do you agree with me? Anyway, thank you very much!
