Yes, this generalization is wrong - "had been" is the past perfect of the verb "to be".

if we rephrase the following sentence from
"Before its independence in 1947, India was ruled by Britain as a colony and they relinquished power is "
to
" Before its independence in 1947, India was ruled by the British as a colony and they relinquished power ", will it be a correct sentence ?

In A,B,C and D Britain is mentioned. In E British is mentioned. Isn't it meaning changed?

This is not a good question. D is as correct as E.

But don't worry, the official GMAT exam doesn't involve these kind of ambiguous questions. Official questions are rather direct.
