Face vs facing parallelism issue

IDLA Supermarket is a noun so facing

Past perfect is not appropriate since there is no other action to compare the timeline

IMO - D

Choice between had chosen and have chosen
Had chosen: The survey will not make any sense if the consumer preference was outdated
So C,D,E
Choice between face, facing and rather than , instead of
*Rather than: Gmat's favourite
Face: Sentence fragment

So option D
Correct me if my thought process is wrong

I think arguments can be made in favor of both A and E.

If the choosing happened before the survey we can use " HAD "
on the other hand if the choosing has just finished now and its effect is still continuing then we have to use " HAVE"

is there any way to infer which one is better than the other?

Can some one please explain that why we choose "E" over "D".

Is that because of parallelism ?
