A. Seems grammatically correct. I will choose this as the answer.
B. “have led” is incorrect since this happened between 1876 and 1904.
C. Sounds awkward
D. Awkward (“There were … leading” seems incorrect. “serving” seems incorrect as well.”)
E. Awkward (“There were … leading” seems incorrect. “for serving” seems incorrect as well.”)

IMHO B
Reason
1. I do not like "between 1876 and 1904 " in between construction...of phrase.
2. Concerns still have effect in present so present perfect is also fine.

Wheter its A or B, I have a query.

Why the seperators are not used in any of the option? Like if I use the seperator in A, it will become
Concerns about public health led to the construction, between 1876 and 1904, of three separate sewer systems to serve

Waiting for a kind explaination

Sorry for the late reply friends...The OA is A...I marked it as B while attempting...Realized that due to the modifier error, B is wrong....
