The expression ‘living in two worlds’ is wrong because, it gives a tangle as if something of the present is being compared with either an event in the past or a person of the past. This distorts the meaning of text, which wants to compare Brant with his contemporaries, people who lived around the same time of Brant. So BCD are out.

E lacks a verb for the first part of the sentence- wrong; we can’t use the conjunction 'as' without verb.

A remains.

Does the choice E lack a verb?
I would have ignored the explanation had it not been from an expert. Just want to be sure here!!
