OFFICIAL EXPLANATION: GMAT Sentence Correction by Brandon Royal

Choice D

Classifcation: Parallelism

Snapshot: This problem is included to highlight the use of parallelism in contexts of ellipsis.

To test choice D, simply complete each component idea, making sure each makes sense. “Cannelloni
has been my favorite dish …Cannelloni always will be my favorite dish.” Now check this against the
original: “Cannelloni was my favorite dish (doesn’t work)…Cannelloni always will be my favorite dish.”
Choice E suffers the same fate as choices A and B, erroneously omitting has been. Choices B and C are
muddled; the word “was” illogically suggests that Cannelloni was once a favorite dish but no longer is.

Lovina & Rajeet123, Hope this helps

A simple way to get rid of A, B, and E is to realize that once we say "has," we need "been." We can't say "Cannelloni has my favorite dish" or "Cannelloni has be my favorite dish."

C might make sense in the context of a longer piece of writing. If I'm describing how long ago, someone tempted me with cannelloni, I might say "Cannelloni was my favorite dish," and then--to show my continued loyalty--I might add "and always will be" as an aside. However, without any additional context, the use of "was" is not very clear.

It's also useful to note that "has been" includes the time up to the present, so it makes "is" (as in E) redundant.
