support of/by is a hard point to remember which one is correct

the tense error is possibly more easy to realize
in choice E, are receiving is incorrect because present continuous show a temporary action which dose not last long. this tense can not go with "consistent".
in choice D, receive is in present simple which show a timeless fact right alway. this is not the case. "consistent" should be used with a tense which show a period . that tense can be present perfect "have received". that is why choice c is correct

a focus here should be tense problem but not the idiom "support of/by" .

tense problem is a hard point in english. but when we see a tense difference, we can solve it if we slow down and take enough time to analyse actions and meaning. time problem is time consuming to solve. anticipate this long time for a success on tense problem.

the difference between simple present and present perfect is hard. choice C and E test us this point. this difference is basic , so, gmat test us this point many time. whenever we see split between simple present and present perfect, think about a period of the action and a timelessness of the action.

Unqualifying is the wrong word to use, so A and B are out. D and E use the wrong tenses. The right tense to use here is present perfect, so C is the right option

In my view, such non-critical rules are meant for the end, when one is stuck between two answer choices and starting with such assumptions is not the best approach. Or is this really an "always incorrect" usage?

"are receiving" in choice E is wrong.
though many person agree the usage of "are receiving" in E, I think it is wrong. read the following page, which, I think, is great page of present continous

we can be confident to eliminate "are receiving" . it is not fit in this context .
