A

past tense is sufficient to convey the information. this narrows down to a or d. in d, the answer refers to pulses instead of pulse.

to tell you the truth I cant see any difference between A B D except for the singular and plural in ( Pulse/Pulses), I have never faced a GMAT question where the split falls into just this.
Can you tell us the source of this question?, because I really doubt that on the GMAT this will be the only split, there is always other errors where we can sink our teeth into and reach the right answer.

actually in A the verb is not past tense, it is present perfect, it's just that HAVE is omitted otherwise the sentence would not be parallel and wrong.
