To be honest I can't understand the meaning of the sentence properly!
Eliminate B, C for unnecessary usage of being
Eliminate D as we don't need a conjunction rather whatever I understood from the topic we need a contrast.
Hence E

I've some problem to understand; please someone helps!

Don't you think her would be replaced by his?

The patient here, is actually the 'her'. and for that reason I think only 'D' came close to making any sense. All the other ones look like run-ons without the comma.

What's the source of this question?

It's a bad question to begin with. That's one of the many issues with SC1000.

I pick E (best in the lot)... you need 'yet' to show contrast. so C and E are left. C is eliminated for 'being'...
