Notice the usage of the word peculiar here.
The phenomenon should bring out some contrast.
D does the same.The Cells beat in unison, 'yet' they are mutually exclusive.

Only A, C, D follow parallel structure. The meaning of D is more concise beating in union although adopting...exclusively is correct form. The word "peculiar", "union" vs. "exclusively of one another" are the key words in this question.

Yeah... the use of the word peculiar calls for contrast. D achieves this. Chose A initially.
