2-The director said that we had to downsize the engineering team by 20 percent if the negotiations had fallen through.
What is wrong in the sentence ?
The multiple choice options don't make sense to me, unless I'm missing something here. I would fix the sentence thus:
The director said that we would have had to downsize the engineering team by 20 percent if the negotiations had fallen through.
A) a) Had
B) b) By
D) d)Had fallen
