The answer is A
The sentence is in present tense .
So we need a present perfect tense .
Use of had is incorrect

But isn't usage of Yet and still together redundant? The answer remains same for D, without "still".

This sentence was found in the middle of a passage and to me 'Yet' shows contrast. It infers that despite something taking place the brotherhood continues to instill fear and this fear is ongoing, ie present continuous. I also think that 'still' plays the role of emphasizing something here.
