I go with C.

There is a visible problem with option B. "Remained" and "become" are in different tense while they should be in the same tense. "became" is better.

C.

In 'B', 'become ill' is definitely changing the tense also it sounds awkward.

B cannot be correct. C it is.

Can you please tell the source of this question
Because in no sense the answer can be B
and 'C' is the only that come close
because in B no doubt whereas is better than while but in B the use of present continuous tense is wrong as far as I think
Please any Verbal guru help us to solve this question....!!!!!

I will go with C, coz 'B' has a problem with "Remained" and "Become". I accept whereas is better than while, but the tenses are itself wrong in 'B'.
OA please...

Adding to the thread:
In C the meaning of the sentence in changed. The presence of WHO in this sentence points out to the whole group of English priests. But in the ques we are talking of only those priests who attended victims of the plague during an outbreak in london
(C) while the English priests, who shunned the odiferous herb, soon became ill

I am afraid that I don't agree with you on this part.....
as priests who shunned this odoriferous herb are the ones that fell ill which is correct and does not change the meaning at all.
