Two students, James and John were given a grammar test by their teacher. The question was, β€œis it better to use β€œhad” or β€œhad had” in this example sentence?”

The teacher collected the tests, and looked over their answers.

James, while John had had β€œhad”, had had β€œhadΒ had.” β€œHad had” had had a better effect on the teacher.
