E looks the best option. "Contrary to those of his colleagues" goes well with "Churchill's sentiments" but skeptical about his referring to"Winston Churchill's"

Please correct me if I an wrong.

This question contains comparison error. Person should be compared to person and sentiments should be compared to sentiments. An illogical comparison between person and sentiments does not work.

Sentiment || Winston Churchill= wrong comparision

Quote:
B) In contrast to his colleagues, Winston Churchill’s sentiments were, on the whole, more critical


Colleagues || Winston's sentiments= wrong comparision

Quote:
C) Winston Churchill was contrary to the popular sentiments of his colleagues on the whole and more critical


Winston was contrary to sentiments= wrong comparision

Quote:
D) In contrast to the popular sentiments of his colleagues, Winston Churchill was more critical, on the whole,


Again sentiments || Winston = wrong comparision

Quote:
E) Contrary to those of his colleagues, Winston Churchill’s sentiments were more critical, on the whole,


sentiments of colleagues || Winston's sentiments = correct comparision.

Correct Answer.

Can you clarify positioning of 'on the whole' in choice E and its value in sentence meaning clarity?
