Pada dialog, terdapat penggunaan kata keterangan durasi waktu "for five weeks" (selama lima bulan) dan "for the whole five weeks" (selama lima bulan penuh). Lalu, penggunaan kata had dan did menunjukkan bahwa Jihan dan Glen sedang membicarakan peristiwa di masa lampau.
Untuk menyatakan peristiwa yang sudah terjadi selama durasi waktu tertentu sebelum/ketika peristiwa lainnya terjadi di masa lampau digunakan Past Perfect Continuous Tense. Pola kalimat positifinya adalah "S+had+been+Ving". Jadi, kata yang tepat untuk mengisi bagian rumpang pertama adalah had been looking, sedangkan kata yang tepat untuk mengisi bagian rumpang kedua adalah had the police been helping.
Kedua kalimat rumpang secara utuh akan menjadi "I had been looking for him for five weeks." (Aku sudah mencarinya selama lima bulan.) dan "Had the police been helping you search for the whole five weeks?" (Apakah polisi membantumu mencari selama lima bulan penuh?).
Dengan demikian, jawaban yang tepat adalah A.
