Bull.
IMO A.

I would select (i) coz
concerns about cyber crimes led to the passing between 1990 and 2010 of cyber laws
IMO this sentence seems proper construction

i will give a try for (ii)
concerns about cyber crimes ledto the passing of cyber laws between 1990 and 2010
But here "between.... " seems to depend on following sentence

Wish experts to pitch in to share their views

bxn A n B

B : have led ( the perfect tense ) is the deal breaker : the timeframe is 1994-2010 ie PAST so present perfect doesn't make sense ; the laws were already passed so there's no scope of any ongoing aroma in lieu of that.

Led scores over Have led

apart from this the placement of modifiers in A makes it a better fit than B

leading to A, my take

Not convinced with OA, as it sounds a bit awkward , should have been

Concerns about cyber crimes led to the passing of various cyber laws between 1990 and 2010 to serve

Isn't it, First we say Concerns ABOUT? then we say what it LED to WHAT? then we say TIME PERIOD then we say WHAT was the PURPOSE of LAWS.

(A). sounds awkward by giving time frame before telling what the CONCERNS led to?

Spot on with the explanation! since a time frame is mentioned you need to continue with led.

I chose B..

I am bit skeptical about the OA. Isn't the position of "between 1990 and 2010" is awkward in A and is better in B.

I guess led and have led is the tie breaker but the above point doesn't make me much convinced about the OA.

Experts please help..

I think we have to remember that sometimes the right answer is still an ugly answer. I picked A, more because it was the least ugly of the ducklings

Does that mean an ugly duckling will give you 700+ score :)

Although I selected the option A), I don't like the question because "Concerns" cannot lead to "the passing of a law" but it can lead to "the passage of a law".
