Where is used to infer a place, Which is used to infer a situation/condition
In this question "in the world" is a situation in which the Presidents lived, so which is used.(There are not many worlds, so presidents can't have ant option to live in some other world rather they may live in the same world with different situations/conditions such as,political, fiscal or social etc..)

I was also between D and E but chose E because I thought that cooperating in maintaining sounded better than cooperated to mantain

Hi,
he role of 'for' is ofcourse illogical here..

But 'for' can be used in this form, meaning 'because of'/'because'..

I was tired, for I had played cricket throughout the day..
I was very happy with her, for she supported me in all situations..
I gave few examples on usage of 'for', for smartyguy wanted clarity on the usage..

Option C could also be the correct choice . Press may also be the reason for the separation. I think i can think in this way also. Because it is about the meaning of the sentence.
Please clarify .

public and private realms of their lives were largely separate, and the press

leaders without receiving, or expecting, intimate information about them.

Here we are erroneously implying that the press caused the separation in the 'public and private realms.'

Hi Robu,

Option C cannot be correct as per meaning of the original sentence -American presidents lived in a world in which the
public and private realms of their lives were largely separate & Press cooperated to do so.

As per choice C - American presidents lived in a world in which the
public and private realms of their lives were largely separate because Press cooperated to do so.

Please note that we should not deviate from the meaning of the original sentence.
