Option E is the best.There is no ambiguity. Other choices are awkward. There is no time frame or location being mentioned . Please give me kudos. I need them badly.

Correct choice is E. ‘While’ acts as a subordinating conjunction and in this sentence by using ‘while’ the subordinate clause (sparing others) is linked to the main clause

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



‘When’ refers to times and ‘where’ refers to locations. Both are inappropriate here. ‘While’ introduces a contrast. There is a contrast present in this sentence. Choice E is the correct answer.
