Between A and E, I too can't see more than concision as the main difference. Perhaps at best we can correlate a style such as the "V-A-N" rule wherein we can say an action related 'attending' is better than the noun 'attendance' or the verb 'knew' is more preferred than the adjective 'knowledgeable.'

Something like ‘because’ is needed as the first term in the underlined part. ‘For’ works well.

C and D can be eliminated due to wrong use of ‘with’. They both distort the meaning by changing "Not everyone knew" to "everyone did not know"

A and B can be eliminated for the awkward use of “in attendance”.

E is the best choice.

During her lecture the speaker used map to clarify directional terms, for not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable that winds are designated by the direction from which they come.

(A) for not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable
(B) for everyone in attendance did not know
(C) with everyone in attendance not knowing
(D) with everyone attending not knowledgeable
(E) for not everyone attending knew

If you note carefully Option B completely changes the meaning of sentence. "Not everyone was knowledgeable" is not same as "everyone did not know."

Just like "not everyone in class passed" is not same as "everyone in class did not pass."

Only choice that correctly communicates the meaning here in option E.

daagh

Is there anything apart from verbiage that rules out "everyone in attendance" vs "everyone attending" ?

Between option A and option E, i made a choice only because of concision. Is there something i am missing here ?
