A is correct.

Subject Historians should have plural verb - have. So options C and D are out.

Understand the meaning. "Historians traced the first appearance of 'pie in face' gag" and not the short film that had it. So option B and E are out.

E changes the original meaning. original says first appearance of the pie in.... and option E says ....to its first appearance.

IMO

A) have traced the first appearance of 'X' to 'Y'
E) have traced the 'X' to its first appearance in 'Y'

After doing above construction 'A' option makes sense

I have a doubt is there any idiom for word 'traced'?
