A. continues to frustrate researchers seeking
B. continue to frustrate researchers who seek --- incorrect needs singular verb
C. has continued to frustrate researchers who are seeking ---- incorrect tense
D. are continuing to be frustrating to researchers seeking ----- Diabetes is singular
E. have continued to frustrate those researchers who seek ----- Diabetes is singular



Hence option A is correct

Diabetes is singular so B, D and E are out
Now Option C is not even concise but also changes the tenses. writer is giving a general information about the present condition that diabetes continues to frustrate researchers. Correct answer is A

I bet on C and got it wrong. My reasoning was that the present perfect applies to:

Something that began in the past and continues to the present moment

So I though "hey, this frustration started in the past and continues in the present moment".

What is wrong with my reasoning? Why present perfect is incorrect here?
