D unimaginable enough so as to constitute
E so unimaginable that it has constituted

Ans: B

So ... as to constitute << correct usage.

I would go for B also. I think "to constitute" is over a defined period in time. In E, "has constituted" implies continuity which I don't believe is proper for the verb "constitute" and it is also more wordy than B

In this example, is and call are in the present tense. This means that although the massacre happened in the past, it is being judged in the present, hence the answer choices with the past tense constituted are eliminated. Now the process of elimination comes down to the awkwardness of choices C and D, both are idiomatically incorrect, as enough so would have worked better as enough to constitute.
We are left with B as the best answer.
