I think there is a typo in B.

It should be

seen layers of sediment in the gaping canyon, whose different colors mark

if it is a typo then I choose B

other wise A is better than other choices.

C and D is using wrong past perfect continious tense.

E is incomplete.

I agree with you.

Parallelism have visited and have seen and B sounds right to me if this is a typo.

i chose D 'cause i thought that not all those who visit the Grand Canyon can see the layers of sediment.
thus, the original meaning of the sentence should reflect the posibility that some visitors can see the layers.

Marking in D suggests that the canyon is still ageing.

A for me.

Whose in B and C can refer to those or layers: ambiguous.

E is incomplete.

Between A and D, A is clearer.
