between A and D chose A for parallelism.

I think A is correct.

Some people are confused between A and D.

Don't know why you would need "has been". D looks like a bad choice.


I would go with A.

I think A. Action started in past and still it is continue. So present perfect tense is correct.

By active/passive contrast, we can choose A over D.

Answer should be D


I think that in D has been done is passive and hand picking their crop is active, so we will reject that and choose A for maintaining the parallelism.

GMAT seems to like active voice, which is the only difference between a and d. So a is the answer.

the issue is not active voice over here but to maintain the parallelism. If the other part had passive voice then we would have preferred the passive voice over here.
But since the non underlined part has active voice we will go with active voice in our answer choice.

Simple, Verb-Tense problem.
For centuries gives us a hint that we need present perfect tense - they have been doing for centuries (till now). Only Option A satisfies it.
