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

(A) are thought to have first entered
(B) were thought first to enter
(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.

Nothing wrong with 'A'.

Agree with u2lover's reasoning.
