In my opinion, A is correct. We need to show continuity.

(A) has been necessary to develop and enforce the principle that all juries must be -> has been is incorrect we want simple present here
(B) was necessary for developing and enforcing the principle of all juries being -> eliminate
(C) was to be necessary in developing and enforcing the principle of all juries to be -> incorrect
(D) is necessary to develop and enforce the principle that all juries must be -> correct idiom
(E) will be necessary for developing and enforcing the principle of all juries being -> eliminate

Simplify the statement :
although X ruled that Y could not be done,Z is necessary to enforce the principle that all juries must be drawn from “a fair cross section of the community.”

principle that is correct idiom

Can I also get this answer. I am guessing as B as we need to maintain the same tense throughout the sentence.

As far as principle is concerned principle that is the correct usage
I wonder y has been is correct here may be we are talking about past
