(E) Although accounting for

OA is (E)
However, as far as I know, "although" can only have a "clause" after it. How come this one has a "phrase" after "although"??

Since there is a contrast, we need to use although. D also sounded a possible option but I picked up E as it sounded better.

D....

Despite having sounds good in all options..

e) is tempting as well but between D) and E) would choose D....

Should be E.

The subject here is "US citizens " and not "US". So it cant be D/B/A. Being is generally avoided if there is an alternative. So it should be E.
