E it is

(A) while being an adolescent ---wrong while being is ungrammatical
(B) while in adolescence --wrong cos it sounds like adolescence is a place
(C) at the time of her being adolescent ---unnecessarily wordy
(D) as being in adolescence -- this is ungrammatical as it makes adolescence sound like something you can enter or exit from
(E) as an adolescent

i am not too sure. but IMO B) is out b/c "while" is a conjunction and is followed by a clause and a clause must contain a subject and a verb.
