I recently found this in a file file on my hard disk. I think it comes from a language group on a social network I'm a member of:

a) did not die b) should not die c) would not die d) had not died

At the end of the war, we … with much obsolete, heavy industry.
a) had left b) were left c) had to leave d) were to leave
