Hai pals, Please post rationale behind your choice, dear. Its very difficult for any moron (like me :)) to varify his answer.
Anyways, my answer is B
I can see here the pronoun problem, "their" says the historian "reflect" and not "reflects", removed choice A & C.
E is wrong, probably due to preposition use "in" with writing, not sure as such :(
D seems wordy to me.

Anyways, lets wait for official answer

My answer is D
A is wrong because 'writes' and 'reflects' does not fit with 'their'.
B is talking in future tense about the historians which is doubtful.
C is again 'a historian', does not match with 'their'
E does not make any sense when put in the sentence.
D is correct as it is a sensible modifier at a right place.
Waiting for the official answer!!

I feel B would have sounded appropriate if the comma before "and" is dropped ie

The record of the past is always incomplete and the historian writing about it will inevitably reflect the preoccupations of their own time.

I vote for D
