I will also choose A.

My explanation:

A) I think A is right because it says that we see Quasars now(after their lights reached the Earth) as they were seen during the formation years.
B) 'they had been' changes the meaning of the sentence. It means that someone had seen quasars earlier. How can that be when their lights has reached Earth after travelling for billions of years?
C) 'as if..during' is doubtful. 'as if' what?
D) again it seems to change the meaning of the sentence. 'they did..' indicates the quasars did something. We are only talking about quasars being seen.
D) 'as though..' is not proper.
