the belief is still the same, correct? then humans are thought to have first entered

b/w A and D, but D is very wordy (humans are not same as entering)

so my choice is A

(C) were thought at first to enter
(D) are thought of as first entering
(E) were thought to first enter

As "Geologist believe" => present belief
Needs "are thought"

Only A and D fit. Of the two D does not have the correct tense.

Answer : A
