1. The "government" is not a place so it is not correct to use "where". A, B, C are out.
2. Between the remaining 2 choices E is a logical and parallel one. So E.

A. where people were motivated by a desire to cooperate and not fear --> where can only modify place

B. where people were motivated by a desire for cooperation and not for fear

C. where people were motivated by a desire for cooperation and were not by fear

D. in which a desire for cooperation was motivating people, not fear --> past continuous not required, E is better

E. in which people were motivated by a desire for cooperation and not by fear --> correct

I will go for option E.
Where is used to refer places so A, B, C are out.
Between option D and E, E is the best option.

Where can not refer to government, so A, B, C are out.

D, and E remains.

Motivated by X, and not by Y --> Correct Idiom.

Hence E.

"people are motivated" - isn't people a singular noun?
