I have a specific question...here E is wrong since the scentence is framed such that the $50billion left mexico on it own (walked away?) ....i am uncomfortable about this choice but am not able to say why...could someone please explain ? E is wrong because having left is wrong. having is present tense, and left is past.

I feel if E was changed to "Approximately$50 billion in private investment capital is estimated to have left Mexico during the 1980â€™s, adding", then it would have been correct.

Can someone explain why "A" is incorrect?
