Tough One!
I am stuck between A and C
"While Once" in C sounds better than "Where Once" in A and "by supporting" in A sounds better than "in support of" in C!
I'm confused!

Will pick C and see what others have to say ...

Needs past perfect here. (A) is my choice. Use of 'while' just doesn't make
sense to me.

Ya I got it!
It's A
While refers to something taking place in the same time. In this sentence While doesnt make sense indeed! This is the first time I see the expression "Where once" .. sounds strange!

while should be used when we want to indicate something happening at the same time some
other action is taking place.

For instance,
While washing the dishes, Jane listened to the radio.
I did <something> while he did <something else>

OA is A.

I didn't know this usage rule of 'while'. Thanks!

Notice the time shift in the stem: "Where once the union had acquiesced ... after 1897 ..." As you can see, there are two different time periods. C,D and E, "while once" denotes two things happening at the same time and are clearly out.
B is out because it makes it that the prejudice belongs to the members
