(A) malaria was once universally believed to have been---- quite good ; the use of passive present perfect correctly connotes the context of the introduction ascribed to the 16th century explorers

(B) malaria was at one time universally believed as being--- The present progressive as being adds an unnecessary antithetical twist to the episode. How can 16th century people be seen as currently introducing? In addition one time means numerically just one time and not subsequently.

(C) malaria, once universally believed to be – believed ‘to be introduced’ may also wrongly denote that the disease is perhaps going to be introduced by the ancient travelers now; absurd.

(D) malaria was at one time universally believed as having been – one time is the culprit. -One time- is a numeric that says it was believed just one time and not as a general or infinite belief. Same problem as in B

(E) malaria, once universally believed as being --- The contemporariness of the ‘being’ is the culprit.


600 -700 question? We will take it, though with a picnh of salt since our OG specialist Abdur says so.
