i agree that A is best because other choices have grammartical error.
however, i see that A has something

appear to have made
in this pattern, making happen before appear. so, the sentence is not logic because an industry at present appear to me to have done something in the past.

appear to made
is better, I think

am i correct?

Spoiler alert: if you're asking whether the OA is incorrect on an official GMAT question, the answer is always “no.” :-)

Anytime we see “to + verb” the verb will never be in the past tense, even if the action happened in the past. It’s an issue your ear will hopefully pick up on, especially if we make the sentence a bit simpler: “Yesterday I decided to go to the doctor,” not “Yesterday I decided to went to the doctor.”

The issue is the same in this question. “Appears to have made” = correct.
“Appears to made” = incorrect.

I hope this helps!
