A is the answer.

Human beings are thought (now) to have first entered (sometime in the past) the Americas.

To have + past participle denotes a past action.

To choose from ‘are’ or ‘were’ – I eliminated ‘were’ subjunctive because it is used traditionally in expressing hypothetical situations or when you presuppose contrary to fact (eg If I were rich…). In this case ‘Geologists believe’ and the tense is still present.
B,C, E eliminated.
between A and D, A fits the sentence – “to have first enteredâ€
