    The world _____ by the animals in Arctic Tale

    The world _____ by the animals in Arctic Tale _____ rapidly changing from a perpetually frozen wonderland to an unstable maze of melting ice and snow.

    A) inhabited / is
    B) having inhabited / was
    C) inhabited / has been
    D) being inhabited / had been
    E) inhabiting / will be


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

    It is a present tense sentence. For "has been" to work you would have to change "changing" to "changed".
