(A) and the press cooperated in maintaining the distinction, and

The parallelism of 'in which' is violated by two 'and's.

(B) where the press cooperated in maintaining the distinction, and where

The 'where' clashes with the 'in which.' Typically, unless you are talking about a specific place, use 'in which.'

(C) for the press cooperated to maintain the distinction and

Here we are erroneously implying that the press caused the separation in the 'public and private realms.'

(D) the press cooperated to maintain the distinction, for

'the press...' would form a comma splice.

(E) in which the press cooperated in maintaining the distinction, and in which

This choice maintains parallelism by use of the 'in which' across the three phrases A, B, and C. Each of the 'in which' correctly modify 'world.'

Option C could also be the correct choice . Press may also be the reason for the separation. I think i can think in this way also. Because it is about the meaning of the sentence.

Hi Robu,

Option C cannot be correct as per meaning of the original sentence -American presidents lived in a world in which the
public and private realms of their lives were largely separate & Press cooperated to do so.

As per choice C - American presidents lived in a world in which the
public and private realms of their lives were largely separate because Press cooperated to do so.

Please note that we should not deviate from the meaning of the original sentence.
