A for me

Because I think the idiom is : "...to be necessary to do..."
but i am not sure

so it can only be A or D

in D the present tense seems illogical. We need at least present perfect because we are talking about past events and about their consequences in the present time.

(A) - has been necessary to develop and enforce the principle that all juries must be

(B) - 'being' drawn is awkward

(C) - awkward sentence

(D) - 'is' is not appropriate

(E) - 'will be' is out

A is the best choice. The present perfect 'has been' is ideal as it emphasizes that the adjudication started in the past and right up to present times.
