E

'Being' is almost always wrong on the GMAT. Rules out A, B and D.

There are a lot problems with C.

POE leaves me with E.

At first I really wanted to go with B beacuse I was looking for that contrast that the word spite provides, but without it E is still grammatically correct. I guess they do that to trick you.
