    It has two sentences
    2nd sentence is in simple past
    so the first sentence could be in past perfect
    so i thought
    The Ship HAD BROKEN,Robinson arrived on the Island.
    But this is'nt giving complete meaning.
    The ship HAVING BEEN BROKEN,Robinson arrived on the island.
    This seems more appropriate indicating the first sentence is already completed and explaing the reason for the second sentence

    “Having been” is the past participle form and used to emphasize that a first action has been completed before the second action begins. So, it is for the second part of the sentence where, firstly the Ship broke and then the Robinson arrived on the island.

    I couldn't understand this
    Because the second part of the sentence is already in past so first part should be past perfect means had been broken.
    Isn't so?

    The word the ship is an object is before the blank that is why it is a passive structure so I think the answer must be
    having been broken
