Correct verb form

Post by Rustamsher » Fri Oct 11, 2019 11:11 am


A new modern types of Ultra-books are assumed ... in expensive costs after holding demonstration.

a) to sell
b) to have been sold
c) to be sold
d) being sold

I saw the test above in a book. As concerns the answer, I have no exact option.
Could you help me?

P.S.: Is the article used at the beginning of the sentence correct?

Many thanks.

The sentence as it stands is highly ungrammatical and not fit for use in any test book! However, it would seem that (b) is the intended answer.

P.S. No - along with other parts, incorrect!
