The choice is between C and D imo, because we need "damage to XY".

The use of "had been to" in C implies that damage happened before trust has been declinining. This is illogical because we want to state that the damage was caused by the reduction in trust.

Hence, option D is the correct answer imo as it shows that this effect may have taken place.

VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:



With only one concrete decision point (the verb choice and what follows), you need to figure out what is really going on in the sentence. Often this is best done by using “slash-and-burn” to eliminate any garbage and only read the core elements. The last part of the sentence in (A) is really “the damage…may be public health and safety.” This is clearly illogical predication! Public health and safety are not “damage”.

Leveraging the fact that (C) and (D) have the necessary “to” at the end, you can see that (D) is correct: “the damage…may be TO public health and safety.” You can have damage TO public health and safety - this option makes sense. (C) – the only other answer with the necessary “to” – is incorrect as the past perfect tense “had been” cannot be used with present perfect “has been” used earlier in the sentence. Correct answer is (D).
