A –times is plural. Was is incorrect. Eliminate
B – same as A. Eliminate
C – Not parallel. Determined and differing. In this sentence the role of determined is a VERB. Hence, Determined Vs differing needs to be parallel. C says "which were determined by and differing" - those aren't parallel. Eliminate
D – Keep. See explanation See explanation of "start up user" in this thread. The role of determined is of a participle and not a verb. So we don’t do parallelism check of determined Vs Differing
E –See explanation of "start up user" in this thread. The role of determined is of a participle and not a verb. So we don’t do parallelism check of determined Vs Differing. Eliminate
