China was united under X -> One independent clause,
Next clause China was united again four centuries later -> Independent Clause
A time now regarded … is a modifier modifying the Tang Dynasty. We can ignore the modifier.

Option A) is incorrect 2nd Independent clause doesn’t have a subject and two IC is connected using nothing more than a comma.
Option B) Same issue as Option A)
Option D) China was (Singular). They cannot refer to china. – Incorrect.
Option E) Same issue as that of Option D)

Option C)
The first Independent clause is in past perfect which signifies that action occurred before Buddhism was introduced. Looks good and also the 2nd Independent clause is connected with “and” .The Subject “it” refers correctly to China and the clause has a proper subject.
