    A report -------- today by two environmental organizations

    A report -------- today by two environmental organizations found that localized pollution is the most leading contributing factor to disability and disease in communities across the world.

    A) releasing
    B) released
    C) has been released
    D) to be released
    E) was released


    Could you explain me why the key is B, why not C?

    What makes you think that C) would work?
    By the way it's not a very good sentence "...is the leading contributive factor to disability and disease in communities across the world" would be better.

    Because of the word today and can a report release itself?

    It didn't release itself, two environmental organisations released it.
