I think the answer E is grammatically correct but it violated the meaning rule.
"As" is used to make the comparison between "Wright brothers" with "children", but the meaning of the sentence is:
Although they always liked playing with toy helicopters when they were children,....
So, I chose C although it is wordy a bit.
Experts, please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks
