A. you dont need perfect tense here. so b and c are out. 'There ' is ambiguous. hence d and e are out.

A seems fine as it is...

B & C use have led which is wrong (in this sentence it should be had led)
D & E mess up the tense "there were concerns and leading" do not fit well.

Within the set of choices provided, (A) seems to be the best although I would have preferred if it were restated as :
Concerns about public health led to the construction of three separate sewer systems between 1876 and 1904 to serve ....

who cares, this is the GMAt right !

A

B and C use HAVE LED meaning this is still going on, which isn't true
D and E use gerund LEADING to imply an action, also incorrect

Simple past "led" works perfectly here because the action occured well in the past.

(A)
