    #1 doesn't make any sense. Are you sure you have copied it correctly?

    #2 and #3 are correct.

    Yes, I'm sure. I was confused too. Maybe they made a mistake there and missed "to be". Maybe it should be like this:

    1. The books were thought to be...

    a) may be sold successfully
    b) had sold successfully
    c) was sold successfully
    d) sold successfully
    e) are sold successfully

    If there's a mistake in that test, how do you think it's supposed to be?
