Correct SVA.

period --- needs 'has'

so we are left with A and B.

Since we need is at the end, A is out B is the answer.

Maybe i am missing something blatant. But i would appreciate if you could explain this.

The pen, pencil and eraser are on the table. Isn't this sentence like this? Dont we require "are"?

According to me, there are three independent action happening :

The period when the great painted caves at Lascaux and Altamira were occupied by Upper Paleolithic people has been established by carbon-14 dating, but what is much more difficult to determine is the reason for their decoration, the use to which primitive people put the caves, and the meaning of the magnificently depicted animals.

All are parallel noun phrases as already pointed out.

How it can be A??

this is B...

OK lets look at A vs B...

the not underlined part is "reason"...clearly reason is singular therfore we cannot use "are" as used in A..therefore A is out..B it is..

B is right. However, I would have preferred "was established" to "has been established"
