Choose the option corresponding to the word or phrase that expresses the meaning most fluently and logically. In each case, the first choice represents no change from the original text.
The bear finally came out of her lair, where she had hid all winter.
a. she had hid
b. she hides
c. she hid
d. she had hidden
D: From the context, we know that the bear had spent the entire winter hiding in her lair. As a result, the present tense (Choice B) and simple past tense (Choice C) are incorrect. To form the past perfect tense of the verb, use the auxiliary verb “to have” and the past participle of the verb. The past participle of “to hide” is “hidden,” so Choice D is correct.
