C is incorrect because clause should b followed by the thing which is observed... So it should b star not discovery

The typo (1969) in the original sentence has been rectified.

Hi Experts,
Just want to confirm in option A, the use of Past perfect is wrong,as announcement was the later of the two actions?

Hi Experts GMATNinja mikemcgarry
Can you help me with correct sentence structure in option (A) where although is followed by a clause:
Although the first pulsar, or rapidly spinning collapsed star, to be sighted was in
the summer of 1967 by graduate student Jocelyn Bell,
(the -in between comas modifiers: or rapidly .. star) - correctly modifies the first pulsar

the way the clause is written, - to be sighted - seems to verb-ed modifier correctly modifying star.
The sentence structure seems to be in passive mode if I consider phrase: by graduate student.
Is my understanding correct? Do subject and verb make sense in this structure?

it had not been announced.. until February 1968.
(agreeing with incorrect past perfect tense as pointed out because 1968 comes later than 1967,
and not because of word until; past perfect tense can very well go with until)

D is the correct choice - The sentence presents the sequence of events clearly and in the past tense.

An official explanation:

E.
This sentence presents events in a way that is confusing; as a conjunction, while indicates simultaneous events, but this sentence is about events that occurred in a sequence.
