    Recent restriction on imports

    1. Recent restrictions on imports ___ to a depletion of the country's oil reserves.
    A) would lead
    C) have led

    Answer key depicts C, however A is true. When I put A, it senses because it gives a meaning of possibility. Why A is not answer?

    2) Many of the pioneers ___ no information as to what difficulties they ___ once they arrived in their new land.
    A) have / will face
    D) had / would face

    Answer key is D. Person who makes this sentence could mention about an event that could happen in the future, so A seems to be true. Why A is not answer?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Some Grammar Questions

    In general, you can use both in both cases. However, if the book wants to teach you about certain topics, they would want you to choose only a certain answer.
