+1 for D.

A. with world population of 3.5 billion, they have doubled it --> Incorrect

B. with a world population of 3.5 billion, doubling it --> Incorrect

C. when the world's population was 3.5 billion, doubling it --> Incorrect

D. when the world's population was 3.5 billion, it has doubled --> Correct, 'when' refers to the year 1970, 'was' refers to the population(singular), and 'it' refers to the population(singular)

E. when the world's population were 3.5 billion, they have doubled it --> Incorrect

Hence, D.

A. with world population of 3.5 billion, they have doubled it
who they? wrong pronoun - out

B. with a world population of 3.5 billion, doubling it
modifier doesn't make any sense here, wrong usage - out

C. when the world's population was 3.5 billion, doubling it
modifier doesn't make any sense here, wrong usage - out

D. when the world's population was 3.5 billion, it has doubled
seems logically and grammatically correct - keep it

E. when the world's population were 3.5 billion, they have doubled it
who they? wrong pronoun - out
