The sentence requires a word which indicates a contrast --> Eliminate A, D and E

C can be eliminated as present perfect tense is not required.

D. furthermore, lead did not seem to have affected

What is the source of this question ?

IMO the OA should be 'C'

We can easily narrow it down to B,C as we are depicting the contrast however should be used.

Now C is OA because it correctly uses the verb form affected.(Past Tense)

The verb form used is present perfect and not past tense. Present perfect is used whenever an event starts in the past and continues in the present.
