I am also tempted for 'C'.

Correct idiom is So X as to constitute Y - I will go for 'A'.

What is the OA.

so unrealistic as to constitute what one scholar calls an "artificial face."
(A) so unrealistic as to constitute
(B) so unrealistic they constituted ( 'that' missing here )
(C) so unrealistic that they have constituted ( have is not required cause main verb is past tense.)
(D) unrealistic enough so that they constitute ( enough is redundant if we put so b4 unrealistic .. so it is wordy sentence)
(E) unrealistic enough so as to constitute (same as D )

so unrealistic as to constitute what one scholar calls an "artificial face."

(A) so unrealistic as to constitute
(B) so unrealistic they constituted
(C) so unrealistic that they have constituted
(D) unrealistic enough so that they constitute
(E) unrealistic enough so as to constitute

A uses the idiom So X as to Y

In option C, idiom so that which indicates purpose.

He spoke slowly so that the assistant could write everything down.

here, the features of which are not purposely unrealistic to constitute an artificial face.

Correct me if I'm wrong :|

Yes, it's written hypothetically. So you cannot use Present Perfect here. You are right.
