Verse 48: She fell over in the last minutes. She didn’t win the race.
Translation: She fell at the last minute. She did not win the race.
A. Do not translate because of grammatical errors: the topic is the truth in the past, when rewritten in conditional sentences, it must be written in type III sentences.
B. She did not win the race even though she fell down at the last minute → wrong meaning, compared to the original sentence, this is not a contrast clause
C. Because she didn’t win the race, she fell down at the last minute → wrong from the original sentence.
D. She would have won the race if she hadn’t fallen down at the last minute → true because of the type III conditional – suppose an unreal thing in the past.
