Answer Choice D correct verb tense and - at the St Louis Zoo parallel to at other zoos

A, B and E uses incorrect verb tense
C uses simple present stating fact, uses "and" as parallelism marker - at the ..... and at zoos

hi,
C is wrong as the choice misses out on word 'other'..
(C) Black-and-white ruffed lemurs are bred at the St. Louis Zoo and at zoos across the United States..
since we are talking of st louis zoo and all other zoos across the US, so when we say at zoos, it includes st louis too which has already been mentioned..
if it was given st louis zoo in country X and at zoos across the US .. other would not be required

Option C looks grammatically and would have been logically correct had it mentioned some other zoo(which is not in US)
Will Gmat ask a question which requires such specific details?

Hi - I understand why D is the right answer but i do have a query on A/B/ E

In A / B / E -- is it possible to eliminate based on tenses as mentioned in some of the analysis above ? if so, could someone elaborate as i dont know the theory why ...specifically i have marked in bold if based on these alone, i can eliminate answer choices

(A)The black-and-white ruffed lemur is being bred at the St. Louis Zoo and at zoos across the United States
