agree with C.

while is used as a conjunction .. can be related with 'however', 'notwithstanding', 'yet'..

here, 'while' is not used as a noun. author is trying to compare two habits.
hence, while should be used as a conjunction--joins/compares two sentences--& the meaning inferred should be 'notwithstanding'.

even if you relate 'while' with 'at the same time', it makes sense here. isn't it?
..at the same time, priests who shunned garlic...

While as a noun??
i have never seen while used as a noun.

Akamai, could you help us decide.

1. is the use of "while " correct in C.
2. is use of "become" okay in B. i think we need "became".

My 2 cents:

Elimate choices to B and C.
B) has a problem with tense. "Become" I feel is incompatible with the non underlined portion.

C) mY money is on you. "...While the english priests soon became ill" is correct.

I don't see the discussion over the use of the subordinate conjustions while and whereas an issue here.

Anyone disagree?
