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

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

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.

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".

In option A, shouldn't between 1990 and 2010 be between commas. Without commas, the sentence formation seems poor.

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

(A) Concerns about cyber crimes led to the passing between 1990 and 2010 of various cyber laws to serve
looks, good. Concerns led to passing. Laws were passed with the intention to serve regular internet users.

(B) Concerns about cyber crimes have led to the passing of various cyber laws between 1990 and 2010 to serve
have led - present perfect is not needed. Here is a past even, smth happened between 1990 and 2010. Time frame given, netween 1990 and 2010, should be close to the action "led", otherwise, it refers to laws, and thus, distorts the meaning.

(C) Concerns about cyber crimes have led building 1990 and 2010 to various cyber laws for serving
this a very awkward construction. Concerns led building...laws for serving - changes the meaning.

(D) There were concerns about cyber crimes leading to the passing between 1990 and 2010 of various cyber laws serving
there were - unnecessary - leading comes right after crimes, without comma, ing-modifier refers to the closest noun. in this case, it doesn't make any sense.

(E) There were concerns leading between 1990 and 2010 to the passing of various cyber laws for serving
there were = wordy as in D. concerns leading between- oh my, no no no! for serving - again changes the meaning.
