in every part of answer choice C the tense of the text is wrong

C. have left corporate job to start their own businesses, as did many Black engineers and computer experts already.

the use of "have left" is wrong, since from the beginning of the text we can assume that this part must be in future tense.

as for "did many guys already", u need here a past perfect to show that the result of past action exists.

D. Simple and straight. Maintained proper use of tense.

We can not use future tense here since we know time horizon - within next ten years. Only D is correct and concise

The 'will' is not to be underlined; That is a typo; All choices including D have to be read with 'will'; yes D makes sensse in using a future tense for a prediction that is going to happen in the next 10 years.
