(A)which was determined by when the sun reached the observer's meridian and differing
(B)which was determined by when the sun reached the observer's meridian and which differed
(C)which were determined by when the sun reached the observer's meridian and differing
(D)determined by when the sun reached the observer's meridian and differed correct one; clear and ||
(E)determined by when the sun reached the observer's meridian and differing not parallel; we need 'differed' because we're referencing to the past

IMHO, (D)

IMO E is the correct choice...
something led to abolition of local times, determined by when the sun reached the observer’s meridian....
something led to abolition of local times, differing from city to city...
though i don't know what this logic is called, i suppose this is the right way.

Please correct me if i am wrong
