Me too for D.
My understanding is that -
"then" in C does not strongly state the sequence of tenses. D states this sequence more plausibly.

D it is.


(A) After Queen Isabella asked Admiral Columbus to describe the island of Hispaniola (now Haiti), which was newly discovered, he had reached
Incorrect, 'he had' is wrongly used.

(B) On being asked to describe the new discovery of the island of Hispaniola (now Haiti) by Queen Isabella, Admiral Columbus, reaching
Incorrect, we are not supposed to describe 'new discovery'.
'Admiral Columbus, reaching' is awkward.


(C) Queen Isabella asked Admiral Columbus to describe the newly discovered island of Hispaniola (now Haiti), then he reached
Incorrect, 'then he reached' is not supporting the first part of the sentence.
Not parallel.


(D) When asked by Queen Isabella to describe the newly discovered island of Hispaniola (now Haiti), Admiral Columbus reached
Correct

(E) After Queen Isabella had asked Admiral Columbus to describe the discovery of the island of Hispaniola (now Haiti), he had reached
Incorrect, 'had asked' and 'had reached' are not correct tensewise.

Dead set (D). See, there is another use for crumpled paper besides "shooting hoops" in the office :P
