E is wrong because having left is wrong. having is present tense, and left is past.

I would have gone with D. as having sounded wrong to me. I feel if E was changed to "Approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital is estimated to have left Mexico during the 1980â€™s, adding", then it would have been correct.
