It is unnecessary to discuss whether 'The Glass House Mountains' is singular or plural. The non-underlined part clearly implies that it is plural by using a plural verb. Would anyone want to use a singular verb for the same in a different place? Will we again use a singular pronoun it instead of they and its instead of their?

Interesting discussion. Kudos.

One more point of distinction between options D and E: placement of supposedly.

(D) who so named them supposedly because their : We are not sure who named those mountains.
(E) who so named it since supposedly their : We are not sure if those rocks do shine like glass.
