I pick C... new techniques "have made" and still making something possible...

A seems to incorrectly modify "areas" when the actual techniques make X possible

Vote for B.
A and E are wrong because of wrong subject -verb matchings.
D - wrong order of modifiers.

Since new techniques is plural, A and E are out.

D is out for awkward usage of it at the end of sentecen with was
