Is it (D),

took 1min 25sec.
was confused between usage of present tense in first part of sentence and "was" in the underlined part. But I think (D) makes sense, though not sure.

D.

rapidity is a noun, which is incorrect in this context.
C is wrong for it implies that the population was split in 2 halves, but as a matter of fact the population decreased to one-half.
