Before the late 17th century
Before the late 17th century, it ______immoral for women to appear on stage, and as such, males, usually adolescents, _____ female roles.
A) is considered / would have played
B) was being considered / should be playing
C) was considered / would play
D) had been considered / played
E) could be considered / might have played
Why is the key C, why not D?
Re: Before the late 17th century
D) suggests that the thinking on women on stage changed totally and men completely stopped playing female roles, while c) allows for a more gradual change IMO.
