A is the answer.

Human beings are thought (now) to have first entered (sometime in the past) the Americas.

To have + past participle denotes a past action.

To choose from â€˜areâ€™ or â€˜wereâ€™ â€“ I eliminated â€˜wereâ€™ subjunctive because it is used traditionally in expressing hypothetical situations or when you presuppose contrary to fact (eg If I were richâ€¦). In this case â€˜Geologists believeâ€™ and the tense is still present.
B,C, E eliminated.
between A and D, A fits the sentence â€“ â€œto have first enteredâ€
