daagh in option A, both the actions are equally place with use of while...
but in "corruption by military and civilian administration consumes approximately 31 of the 40%, while the balance of 9% is spent on development of impoverished citizens."
there are 2 clauses connected by comma+while...is it acceptable??? while is not a conjunction

As I understand it, we have not underlined ";", so it has to be some independent clause after ";" without any conjuction.
So B, C, D, E are out, because in any of these cases the second (underlined) part continues the first one, and it is not correct.
