Why is having pioneered in the correct tense?

Responding to a pm:

"Credit someone with something" is the correct idiom. Hence (B) is the answer.

Different people call this structure ("having done ...") different things. One of the names for it is a gerund perfect. 'having' doesn't give you the tense or the aspect of the verb i.e. it is a non-finite verb.
"pioneered" tells you that the action is already complete.
