Clear E, here is why

in most of the time "being" is redundant... this case is one of those

"while" in A and B... means that she was continuously signing it during her adolescent time... I think she might of had better things to do than just signing the stupid thing :wink:

not at all... I read it as "she was an adolescent, when she signed the paper"

if it explicitly said "acting as an adolescent" it would have a whole new meaning.
