This is purely based on idioms...

The only version that is correct is "as an adolescent"...so E is the correct answer.

But "as" should not introduce a clause?

Hi all,

If a sentence starts with Although then WHILE is not required in the same sentence part. Please correct me if I am wrong.

(A) while being an adolescent

Agree with the OA E sounds the best while is not required due to Although.
