    Where/How else but as volunteers...

    Please can I ask if we can use How in this blank (the given answer is Where)?

    Professionals call such a visit "a volunteer opportunity". They are opportunities and I have come to see. _____ else
    but as volunteers do you have the opportunity to do something enjoyable that is good for others as
    well as for yourself?

    A. How b. Where c.when d.what

    I think you're right and the given answer doesn't work.

    I think the sentence would be better if the main verb in the second sentence were "would (you) have". If that were changed, I would choose "how".
