^ A ^

We need "was injured" so D and E are out.

C is out as we should say "was discharged" not "discharged"

B is out becuse of "being". And "while" puts a different meaning into the sentence.

Will go with A.

B/C/E are out. Being should not be used. While is incorrect in B
D. Was injured is required
