Although the Supreme Court ruled as long ago as 1880 that Blacks could not be excluded outright from jury service, nearly a century of case-by-case adjudication has been necessary to develop and enforce the principle 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
(B) was necessary for developing and enforcing the principle of all juries being
(C) was to be necessary in developing and enforcing the principle of all juries to be
(D) is necessary to develop and enforce the principle that all juries must be
(E) will be necessary for developing and enforcing the principle of all juries being

Can anyone please explain?

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

Can anyone please explain?


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 :)
