OA is D.
B,C,E is out because they violate paralell.
If we want to use 'had+p.p', this sentence needs some event, which happened after 'had+p.p event'.
So OA is D.

Hello,

Looking at the stem, it seems like in the sentence "first Broadway musical" should be modified by adjectival modifiers, which answer C provides:

- written by a large group of composers AND
- the inspiration for

if you went a different way and used verbs (I'm not sure whether this would be correct or not), you'd have something like this

- was (or had been) written by a large group of composers AND
- was the inspiration for

However, even if you're not sure whether this is acceptable, the other answers are still wrong because they're either not consistent or the verbs are not parallel:

(A) that had been written by a large group of composers and - (VERB + MODIFIER)
(B) written by a large group of composers and which was - (MODIFIER + VERB)
(C) to be written by a large group of composers and which was (INF VERB + PAST TENSE VERB, "to be" and "was" are not parallel)
(D) written by a large group of composers and - (MODIFIER + MODIFIER)
(E) to have been written by a large group of composers and was (PRES PART VERB + PAST TENSE VERB, "to have been" and "was" are not parallel)

hope this helps. let me know if you disagree
