I will pick B here becasue the phrase" led to the construction of three separate sewer systems is better" than "led to the construction between 1876 and 1904 of three separate sewer systems to serve".
Adding time period in between makes it awkward.

Same problem remains with choice C.

I eliminated choice D and E becasue they start with there, which makes it wordy without adding any clarity.

A is fine.

B and C use the perfect inappropriately.

D is ambiguous - public health leads to construction?

E is the wrong tense again. The sewer systems were built during a specific time period so it has to be "led" not "leading" or "have led"

B is best of the choices available.

Though past perfect is not used in the right manner but still its making more sense than any of the other choices.

Wat's the OA?

The perfect tense is inappropriate. While A is not the one of the best constructions - it's accurate for our purposes here.

between A and B, A seems fine though the time-period is misplaced.
i do not remember it but seems i saw this question earlier.

My bet is on A.

According to me, in B- " HAVE led" is incorrect.

Still I dont get why A is the answer, this is GMAT PREP questions so we need to find out why OA is A.
