during is used for a period and for is used for specific data.

I have to disagree with everyone. I think it's D.

"During" is used for a defined time period. For example, "during the Middle Ages". But "for" is used for an undefined amount of time. For example, "for centuries".

I wouldn't bet my life on it or anything, but to me, "for millenia" sounds right and "during millenia" sounds very wrong.

What's the OE?

I'm going with coffeeloverfreak and picking D. The word "for" is used to specify a time period and during is used to express when something happens. riteshgupta1 you got it backwards. If you want to verify this you can go to the following website

Hope I'm not wrong or else I'm gonna look awfully dumb.

This is a D for sure. For millenia is idiomatically correct.

I don't get the argument for E clearly.
I am going with the minority for D.
