Not one of the best questions( will suggest rely thoroughly on gmat prep and og ) ..even i Picked first E then when checked the ans realized the mistake..
(E) were united with- passive format, someone else united them ..nopes from meaning its a past event , they united based on XXX.

Option E is wrong ,because you cannot join people with an ideal .People come together based on an idea .
D is the only option which uses on .
Yes, the question could have been framed well.
