Between E,D and C...

I don't see a grammatical error in D and I think we need the causal link.

another vote for E, parallelism. What an ugly sentence though...

I thought of E, but why isn't it D? It's grammatically correct?

Isn't the causal emphasis important?

Thanks

Late, but (E). Frequently tested concept. "in which" refers to the figurative meaning of "world."

Don't u think in E the "distinction" refer to "he public and private realms of their lives were largely separate". I mean the press supported to keep the two part of the life distinct.

Is it ok for a parallel activities to refer to some thing in other .

i.e

John did A, B and C. In this sentence can "B" refer to something in A.
