neither ... nor.

C is wrong since because of "let".

E is the answer.

Emmanuel, C is not wrong because of "let".....that is a Typo.......C is wrong because "with the parents"appears in the wrong place........

E should be the correct answer.........

Give me a break!

Neither + nor is the usage. Look at D again and I hope you have not made a typo.

The problem with E is this. What should the children be curious about? Divorce or the reasons for the divorce. By using "it" at the end it makes it refer to divorce. IMO it is incorrect. The divorce has already happenend.
Also big big problem with E is that parents did not divroce the reasons but divorced each other.

C is wrong because the children cannot be curious with the reasons
