Choice B.

Whenever you see the word credited it has to go with the word "with".

This is just one of those idiomatic things that you have to memorize.

Not always. I think there are other idiomatic usages of credit

She got no credit for solving the problem.
Her boss took credit for everything she'd done.

I think these are correct idiomatic usages of credit as well.

I agree to above, but the difference is that in your examples 'credit' is used as a noun.

One exception:

Credit X dollars to Y’s account (When money is involved)

Quite an interesting sentence. Will go with C. pioneered dictates a past participle usage in the sentence. giving scope to present perfect progressive - something that started in the past and remains unbeaten until now. embalming methods as long ago as...Finally, present perfect progressives take a 'have'.

Egyptians are credited to have pioneered....

The correct idiom is "credited with", so it's B.

Credited with - when we mention what someone has achieved...
Credited to - when we associate one's achievement/success with a source/reason of something else...

Newton is credited with discovering the laws of motion. -- here we talk about what is achieved.
Edison is credited with discovering the bulb -- here we talk about what is achieved.
We had to credit much of our success to simple good luck. -- here we talk about the source of achievement.

guess such difference is explained in MGMAT SC.
