Could you explain in detail why D is wrong and E is correct?

IMO D.The field of mathematics, which in recent years was neglected by elementary school teachers, who prefer topics that can be easily illustrated by handson activities. (A) mathematics, which in recent years was  No full verb(B) mathematics that was to be  No full verb(C) mathematics, one which has, in recent years, been  No full verb(D) mathematics is one that in recent years has been  Correct, the sentence has a full verb, 'to be' and the modifier is correctly placed. (E) mathematics, in recent years, is one that was  misplaced modifier, 'in recent years'. Kindly correct me if my understanding is wrong.

(A) mathematics, which in recent years was (B) mathematics that was to be (C) mathematics, one which has, in recent years, been (D) mathematics is one that in recent years has been (E) mathematics, in recent years, is one that was MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION: The first thing you have to determine is whether to use the simple past or the present perfect. Because you are talking about a period of time which started in the past and continues in the present you need the present perfect. If you were talking about a specific point in the past you could use the simple past. Eliminate A and E. B also has the wrong tense. C unnecessarily splits the verb ‘has been’. Choice D is the correct answer.
