A is just fine

correct use of tenses - "have persisted" to imply that it is still persisting

"A" completes the sentence most naturally. This is an ongoing tradition...

C, D create a sentence fragment. Persisting as a participle creates a sentence fragment.

E: Persisting modifies the wrong word.

B changes the meaning of the sentence. How Vs Why.

Therefore my AC is A. The "throughout" in A tells us that a present perfect tense is needed.
