One historical theory posits that an important effect of
the Industrial Revolution was that living standards for
the general population began to increase consistently
for the first time in history, while an opposing theory
holds that it did not begin to improve meaningfully
until the late 1800s.
(A) while an opposing theory holds that it did not
begin
(B) while an opposing theory holds that they have not
begun
(C) but an opposing theory holds that it did not
begin
(D) but an opposing theory holds that they did
not begin
(E) with an opposing theory holding that it did
not begin

Answer - D

Option A- it is referring to living standards( singular plural mismatch)
Option B- tense error , we are talking about past , not past coming to present
Option C - same as A
Option D- correct
Option E - same as A
