    Hi.I've been having problem with this question.Identify the incorrect part. The Chairman preferred not to speak until he has heard all the arguments A. not to speak B. until C. he has D. arguments
    'has heard' is wrong and I think it be changed with had heard, but the book says only 'has' should be omitted.Would you please explain for me why 'has' should be omitted?

    Re: Multiple-Choice

    You cannot use the present perfect there because it makes no sense with the past tense used at the beginning, which excludes the connection with the present. However, I would say that heard and had heard are both correct.
