My pick is C

Who became known in A is awkward.

D has a Subject Verb agreement error

E is in passive voice.

recently ! = recent times

B C E are out

Between A & D, I will pick A because we are talking about a lifestyle of the past and not the current lifestyle. Past tense is needed here.

Also up until recently is awkward compared to until recently.
