    tenses

    I have a problem with the verb tenses when many verbs are used in the same sentence. For instance, can I say:
    I had a problem with the due date, which has been solved.
    thx

    I had a problem with the due date, which has been solved.
    I had a problem with the due date, which I had solved.
    Or
    I had a problem with the due date, which had been solved.
    (I think so).
