Another vote for (E).

Why use noun phrases when full s+v sentences have clearer meaning?

Although E looks little wordy to me, it is the best choice out of all.

In D, Apart from S-V error, is the construction "Although not proved..." acceptable?

How about "Despite no proof that.." in A? Is it idiomatic at all?
