SC - not grammer, but more than that

For all his professed disdain of such activities, Auden was an inveterate literary gossip.

(A) For all his professed disdain of such activities
(B) Having always professed disdain for such activities
(C) All such activities were, he professed, disdained, and
(D) Professing that all such activities were disdained
(E) In spite of professions of disdaining all such activities

Here the answer not really lies in the grammer, but the fact that only two options clearly show the contrast implied in the sentence
"Even though Auden said one thing, he did completely the opposite"

Ans - A

E Seems too wordy
