C is incorrect as the idiom in this case will be "Just as".
IMO A
No other choice makes sense....
A is not the best but still better than the rest

Does the sentence structure not indicate that the next phrase shud say something opposite..?

Some thing similar to
"even as I hate to do it, I do it.. "

But here, in the question, Similarity is being shown..

btw, the OA that i have got says A is the answer but i am not completely convinced.
Any takers ?

I dont see what's wrong with A or B. Rest, are out.
Even as Vs While.
I'll pick A - it just seems better than B.

I am trying to understand in the simliar lines to below, but still finding it(ans A) difficult to digest
Even as a young boy he was known to explore different ways of doing things.

But in this case POE will lead to A only.

as not opposite so while, in spite of options are gone.
Similarly one is awkward.
Just like should be 'just as'.

remaining is A. In this question I think POE is better.
