Hi EGMAT Expert,

I have a query in a question from GMAT Prep : Practice Exam 5.

Question

None of the houses that Frank Lloyd Wright built in the Prairie Style actually stood on the prairie, though the drawings in the 1910 Wasmuth edition of his work shows the buildings in the vast spaces of an imaginary Wild West.

A. work shows the buildings
B. work shows that the buildings were
C. works show the buildings
D. works show the buildings as being
E. works show the buildings to have been

OA is C. Though i marked the correct answer choice in the exam, but i am not sure why option choice E is wrong.
I understand that the construction " to have been" is not present perfect. It is something else and is confounding.

Kindly help me understand why option choice E is wrong.

Thanks
Sahil
