1. "preoccupations of their own time" shows that the subject should be plural; So A, B and C are wrong.
2. D is "The record of the past is always incomplete, and the writing about it, it is inevitable for historians to reflect the preoccupations of their own time."
It would have made sense if we have "and when writing about it" instead of "and the writing about it". Also, D is in passive voice. E seems better of the two.
