Official Solution:

Many conservative voters who had previously supported the candidate changed their minds when they learned that, in addition to his strong stance against sexual offenders, he is a lifelong collector of pornographic books and art.

B. in spite of
C. as a consequence of
D. in opposition to
E. concurrently with

The fact that voters changed their minds about the candidate in question indicates that they find something objectionable about him. The voters’ reactions indicate that the underlined word should contrast the candidate’s strong stance against sexual offenders and the fact that he is a lifelong collector of pornographic books and art.
1. In addition to indicates a continuation of an idea, not the contrast called for by the logic of the sentence.
2. The idiomatic phrase in spite of correctly identifies the contrast perceived by voters between a situation the candidate opposes and a lifelong hobby.
3. The sentence does not suggest that the candidate’s collection is a consequence of his opposition to sexual offenders.
4. The phrase in opposition to expresses contrast, but does not conform to the logic of the sentence.
5. Concurrently with does not express the contrast required by the sentence.
