(A) signed

(B) it signed

(C) was signed

(D) that signed


Analysis


Choice (A) results in a version:

The USA became a new country when the Declaration of Independence signed in 1776.

The use of the active voice renders this sentence meaningless, and this choice is therefore wrong.

Choice (B) results in a version:

The USA became a new country when the Declaration of Independence it signed in 1776.

This is also incomplete sentence. So this is also (B) wrong one.

Choice (C) results in a version:

The USA became a new country when the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776.

This is a meaningful and grammatically correct sentence. So, this choice (C) is the correct answer.

Choice (D) results in a version:

The USA became a new country when the Declaration of Independence that signed in 1776.

This is also incomplete and grammatically incorrect sentence. So this is also (D) wrong one.

So, we must choose (C) as the answer.
