I like the analysis. Answer choice (B) fails because the passage is doing more than describing a theory, it's showing how it's superior to the analysis of the second paragraph. "Radical" is apparently unsupported as well.
Answer choice (D) is definitely right, and the passage is much more supportive of the new theory and much more critical of the old theory than you give it credit for. The language you quoted shows that the author thinks the old approach misunderstands some systems, so that the new theory is decidedly better.
Your analysis was good and you proved the right answer with it, so way to go!
