The first split is "has" vs "is." Since the sentence starts with a relative clause, you must use "has" because "has" has ongoing implications that affect the present. Between A, B, and C, it is easiest to just compare them. B is the correct answer because it is the only answer that is clear and unwordy. A and C are just horribly written sentences.
