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

(B) During the 1980’s it is estimated that approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital left Mexico and added
== WRONG, “During the 1980’s” illogically modify “it is estimated”

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

(D) It is estimated that during the 1980’s approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital left Mexico, adding
== WRONG – “left Mexico” and “Adding” are not ll

(E) Approximately \$50 billion in private investment capital is estimated as having left Mexico during the 1980’s, adding
== WRONG - “is estimated as having” is wrong idiom

Among (A) and (C), I think both present perfect tense and simple past tenses are ok. I like (A) more because (C) is wordier

My Ans is (A)
