B. "to be split": indicates that the splitting occurs in the present (in general - eqv. simple present)...wrong

E. "to have split": indicates that the splitting has already occured (in the past - eqv. present perfect).... right

The following examples might further clarify:

He is believed to go there. = it is believed that he (generally) goes there. (in the present)
He is believed to have gone there = It is believed that he has gone there. (at some point in the past)

Similarly,
The line is believed to be split = It is believed that the line is (generally) split.(in the present)
The line is believed to have split = It is believed that the line has split (at some point in the past)
