A. have lay on
use of past tense is wrong here

B. have laid on
here laid is incorrect here
laid---past participle of 'to lay'(means to put or place something) that is a transitive verb and that takes object directly and doesn't make sense without one

C. would lie on
would is incorrect here

D. had laid on
past perfect is incorrect here----laid is also incorrect

E. have lain on (correct)
lain--is a past participle of 'to lie'(means to be located)-- intransitive and doesn't take object directly
these books are located on the table all week --we need present perfect to show that something started in the past but its effect is still present


if there are any points that I missed please correct me
