    All four tenses possible?

    Our friendship _____ quickly over the weeks that followed. A had developed B was developing C would develop D developed

    This is one of our test questions (without any context). Are all four possible if there are proper contexts?

    Thank you in advance.

    I agree.

    I feel really sorry for learners who have these pointless exercises inflicted on them.
