I will go with B

not really sure about the difference between see and appear and if that is what's being tested here.

Between A and B go with 'A'.

In 'B' had been is used improperly.

All other answer choices are wrong.

Selected A.

Reason being that 'had been' implies that they do not exist any more. Not sure if that understanding is correct, though. The others are not in the running...
