I am between A and C, but the usage of 'while' looks better than 'where'.
Hence C for me

A is my choice.

I think, we dont need "HAD", since the second independent clause has a time event, but none of the choices using past tence make sense.

A - keep this
B - for the support of
C - is weird construction too.
D - cant rule out but will not pick it since the past tense somehow is not making sense and moreover convoluted "its English-speaking members’ prejudice" is better with "the prejudice of its English-speaking members"
E is out " in its supporting of"

I will go with D

Eliminated A & B because of the usage of 'where' - no particular place is mentioned.
C & E - Past perfect tense not required

Excellent point - rthothad

This is exactly what I though there where should be used with a known place. But none of the choices made any sense.

I picked D too but that also looks a little convoluted.

Anyway... we will have to wait for OA and OE.

Please dont get me wrong rthothad.

Should "where" always refer to a place? I doubt that...

"Democracy is a form of governance where everyone is equal" here the "where" doesnt need a place

I would say it is A
