Analysis


Choice (A) gives the sentence: “It was the most important event in San Francisco’s history was the disastrous earthquake and the fire of 1906". This sentence has two predicates, and is not the answer.

Choice (B) gives the sentence: “That the most important event in San Francisco’s history was the disastrous earthquake and the fire of 1906". This sentence is not a meaningful sentence and needs a main clause to make this sentence a complete one. So, this choice (B) is also wrong.

Choice (C) also results in a sentence with two predicates. “There was a most important event……was the earthquake…". So, this choice (C) is also wrong one.

Choice (D) gives the sentence: The most important event in San Francisco’s history was the disastrous earthquake and the fire of 1906.

This is a meaningful and grammatically correct sentence, so this (D) is the answer.
