Opt for E --> Parallelism with 'lived in a world in which'

Was torn between A and E. Why is "where" wrong?

I'm also curious why where is not preferred to in which....

it is not B because 'where' should touch the word it is modifiying. "world" is miles apart in the sentence from the word 'where'

E it is for parallelism.

My take is also E.

Though first where may sound a bit logical to you. But if you think about second "where", then you will know why it is wrong.
....where americans judged.....this doesn't make sense. I am unable to give a logical reason with grammar sense. excuse me.
