(A) has been necessary to develop and enforce the principle that all juries must be ('has been', the present perfect, fits well with something that started 'nearly a century' ago and presumably continues today).
(B) was necessary for developing and enforcing the principle of all juries being ('being' is awkward).
(C) was to be necessary in developing and enforcing the principle of all juries to be ('was to be necessary' awkward)
(D) is necessary to develop and enforce the principle that all juries must be (because this action started at some point in the past, the use of 'is' is inappropriate).
(E) will be necessary for developing and enforcing the principle of all juries being ('being' is awkward)

56 seconds

that all juries must be drawn from “a fair cross section of the community.”
(A) has been necessary to develop and enforce the principle that all juries must be - correct
(B) was necessary for developing and enforcing the principle of all juries being - necessary to, not for
(C) was to be necessary in developing and enforcing the principle of all juries to be - was to necessary weird
(D) is necessary to develop and enforce the principle that all juries must be - should be past tense
(E) will be necessary for developing and enforcing the principle of all juries being - should be past tense

Although this question is not directed to me, I will share what I know about this topic.

"being" is not always wrong in the GMAT. It is wrong in most cases (say 99% of the time) when not used correctly.

"Being" can be used as a noun, a verb, a participle adjective or adverb.

"being" is wrong here because it's been used as a verb without a preceding help verb (is, was been etc).
You can say "this girl is being crazy" or "this boy was being whipped" but not "this girl being crazy".

Hope this helps.

So, what I understand is alone Being written somewhere is always wrong. Untill and unless it is precedided by helping verb.

+1 for A. The present perfect tense has been appropriately used in option A.

The rest of the options seems to be awkward.

What is the OA?
