Because "had" is in the mix, we know that we're looking for a past participle, so anything
that's...you know...not a participle can go by the wayside.
Therefore we can nix (A), because "gave" is just past tense, not a past participle.
Choice (C) is way off the mark, since "give" is present tense and doesn't have anything
to do with the past at all.
(D) probably gets the award for being the most wrong, since "gives" is plural on top
of being present tense.
Choice (B) is the correct answer because "given" is the past participle.
It may have only been a participle in the past, but we're hoping it can become a "fullciple"
in the future.
