(A) was most brilliant, but each worked in their sphere

(B) was most brilliant, but each worked in their own sphere

(C) was most brilliant, but each worked in his sphere

We use most when we are comparing 3 or more entities therefore we can eliminate options A/B and C

(D) was more brilliant, but each worked in their own sphere worked
their refers to the singular subject each - wrong!

(E) was more brilliant, but each worked in his sphere- correct!
