(A) and the press cooperated in maintaining the distinction, and

The parallelism of 'in which' is violated by two 'and's.

(B) where the press cooperated in maintaining the distinction, and where

The 'where' clashes with the 'in which.' Typically, unless you are talking about a specific place, use 'in which.'

(C) for the press cooperated to maintain the distinction and

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

(D) the press cooperated to maintain the distinction, for

'the press...' would form a comma splice.

(E) in which the press cooperated in maintaining the distinction, and in which

This choice maintains parallelism by use of the 'in which' across the three phrases A, B, and C. Each of the 'in which' correctly modify 'world.'

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
