(B) stands tall and proud.

Using a little CR logic-

1. present perfect indicates that in the event of another meteorological anomaly, frost may reoccur in Miami.
2. "records" needs to be plural to substatiate the claim. IE: compared from a variety of weather sources.

Agree with Matt. IMO, present perfect tense is better coz present continuous perfect tense is used to describe sth happening non-stop. Here we have "on rare occasions" ----> not continuous ---> present perfect tense is much better.

My money on B.

B - it is .. for me

A- "frost has been occuring" - implies that there is frost occurring even now. This contradicts with opening modifying statement : On rare occasions - which btw, implies of a past event

B-

C - modifier problem ... "On rare occasions" cannot be modifying "as far south..."

D -too wordy ..

E - if you insert the choice you can see it just does not read right
".... but no record has been of a frost in Key West..."

Go with B. However first I thought D should be OK, but "On rare occasions" and "unusual occurances" together would be redundant.

The OA is B. I was totally ready to go with it, when I thought shouldnt the sentence say frost occured in places as far south as Miami, rather than saying frost occured as far south as Miami? Thus I chose D, even though it looked too wordy as suggested by Bhai and 5elements.

Although one more reason to reject D seems to be its usage of record rather than records.
