The baby _____ when her mom cooked in the kitchen.
(A) sleeps (B) was sleeping (C) slept (D) sleep
The answer is option B. Is option C also acceptable?
In my opinion, "when" should read "while" no matter which answer you choose. I think it should also be "while her mother was cooking".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Thank you, bhaisahab! Do we call it sequential past action? Of course, two actions completed in past. However, neither action being an interrupting action.
Please have a look!
This is an extraordinary fact, because it suggests that Abraham interrupted G‑d as He was about to speak, and asked Him to wait while he attended to his guests.

This is a different use of 'while'. "He asked him to wait while he attended to his guests" doesn't mean he performed these two actions simultaneously. It means he asked them to wait, then he attended to his guests. While he attended to his guests, He waited. It means he asked God, "Please wait while I attend to my guests."
