+1 for E

(A) for not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable --> too wordy
(B) for everyone in attendance did not know --> Change in meaning, not everyone to everyone
(C) with everyone in attendance not knowing --> Same as B
(D) with everyone attending not knowledgeable --> Same as B
(E) for not everyone attending knew --> Short and concise, conveys the intended meaning

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This sentence is causative. ‘Because’ or ‘for’ the reason that everyone was not talkative, something happened. The word ‘with’ is clearly the wrong choice here. It does not imply instrumentation, not causation. Choice B changes the meaning. ‘Not everyone knew’ has a different meaning from ‘everyone did not know’. Last of all, choice A is incorrect because it is too wordy. Choice E is the correct answer.
