I go with (D). It's unclear what "which" is referring to. Is it local times or the abolition of local times... In addition, choices A,B, or C violate parallel construction. (A) has "was determined... differing"; (B) has "which was determined... which differed"; and (C) has "were determined... differing". (D) has the best parallel construction.
