(A) who still lived under the impression that investments are closely monitored, a financial security group recently discovered a loophole for enabling a scammer to gain access to transactions made by a leading investment bank so that this person will be aware of any major deals that a corporation had made

(B) who had still been living under the impression that investments are closely monitored, a financial security group recently discovered a loophole for enabling a scammer to gain access to transactions made by a leading investment bank so that this person was aware of any major deals that a corporation might have made

(C) who still were living under the impression that investments are closely monitored, a financial security group recently discovered a loophole enabling a scammer to gain access to transactions made by a leading investment bank so that this person will be aware of any major deals that a corporation had made

(D) still living under the impression that investments are closely monitored, a financial security group recently discovered a loophole that enables a scammer to gain access to transactions made by leading investment banks so that this person is aware of any major deals that a corporation might make

(E) still living under the impression that investments had been closely monitored, a financial security group recently discovered a loophole that will enable a scammer to gain access to transactions made by leading investment banks so that this person was aware of any major deals that a corporation might make

i looked at the tenses that were used for each option - only option D makes any sense...rest use, incorrectly, a bunch of tenses...

this is great question similar to a gmatprep question.
sequence of tense focuses on the use of many tenses in a sentences.
the rule is simple. normally, if the main clause is in the past tense, the tense in dependent clause is also in the past. but some time the tense in dependent clause can be dependent from the tense in main clause depending on logic

look at choice D.
"that investment is closely monitored" should be in simple present disregarding the tense in main clause.
