My 2 cents:
NOTE: Phrases “during the month of the festival” and “for the month of the festival” mean separate things.
“during the month of the festival” – something was done during the month of festival. HERE WE DON’T KNOW WHEN THAT something WILL END!!!

“for the month of the festival” – something was solely done for the duration of festival month. HERE WE DO KNOW WHEN THAT something WILL END!!!

So in options C and E change the meaning of the sentence.

Not necessarily - "I have enough stock for this month.". This sentence does not imply that the stock will end at the end of this month.

But atleast while comparing the meaning of the sentence - these phrases don't change the meaning at all?
May be i am looking into this too much but i think atleast there is some change in the meaning - the meaning i mentioned above may not be accurate but at least there is some change - am i wrong here?
Please let me know, what you think...
thanks

(A) world in that a sacred truce was proclaimed during the festival’s month
(B) world, proclaiming a sacred truce during the festival’s month
(C) world when they proclaimed a sacred truce for the festival month
(D) world, for a sacred truce was proclaimed during the month of the festival
(E) world by proclamation of a sacred truce that was for the month of the festival


Why is B wrong along with that can you explain why E is wrong is that because it is used in passive voice or is there any other reason?

One very apparent error in option E is sacred truce <that was> for the month of the festival.
