Another A .

Reason, The first part of the sentence 9past tense ) is a comparison, with something that has been valid 100 years since. Hence second part can not be in past tense. It has to be in present tense. This leaves us with option A & D.

In D :- The simple present tense, does not work, because the activity has started 100 years back and is still continuing, hence present perfect is better.

On the GMAT, the answer choices that use the word "being" are almost always incorrect. I know it dosen;t help in answering your query but does help in eliminating B which seems to be a potential answer

I am not sure how this is a Q about principle of vs principle that

A rule/law was passed in 1880, to implement it took a century and the process was going along. Only A makes sense.
