30 sec. E it is
A) "everyone being knowledgeable" is much more wordy than "everyone knew"
B) "everyone did not know" changes the meaning of the sentence. It is more like "not everyone knew..."
C and D are out. What is "with" doing here!?

with introduces absolute construction, which one can easily confuse with appositive. answer is E

E for me...

also the difference here between ''with'' and starting the underlined part with '' for not'' is that ...the use of ''with'' changes the meaning stating that ''everyone does noy know the direction terms'
whereas ''for not'' means to say that a few do not have any IDEA about the directional terms...

hope that helps!

HAVE FUN
