This is one in my error log. Fortunately, someday ago I choose it correct. And here is my reasoning. Admittedly, this error is one of the toghest one I face

(A) During the 1980’s approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital is estimated to have left Mexico and added

"during the 1980's" modifies 50 billion, so "main verb-IS" must be "WAS"

(B) During the 1980’s it is estimated that approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital left Mexico and added

Again, "During the 1980's" modifies "it", "IS" must be "WAS"

(C) It is estimated that there was approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital that left Mexico during the 1980’s and added

"during the 1980's" modifies Verb-left, so the meaning changed

(D) It is estimated that during the 1980’s approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital left Mexico, adding
(E) Approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital is estimated as having left Mexico during the 1980’s, adding
