Please explain as to why you pick one over the other.

Although the Supreme Court ruled as long ago as 1880 that Blacks could not be excluded outright from jury service, nearly a century of case-by-case adjudication has been necessary to develop and enforce the principle that all juries must be drawn from â€œa fair cross section of the community.â€

The sentence is intended to mean that itâ€™s taken almost a century to actually implement what was stipulated a back in 1880. Present Perfect should be used to illustrate that the action took place in the past and continued up to the present moment.

D is wrong because it turns the sentence into a whacky statement of fact as in â€œAt least one egg is needed to prepare an omelet.â€

A it is with present perfect use. Present perfect implies that even until today those policies are being enforced...
