    while/ as

    The following is one of China's provinces' college entrance examination questions:
    ____ modeling business is by no means easy to get into, the good modes will always be in demand.
    A. While B. Since C. As D. If

    (The given answer is A.)

    I would think B and C (both with the meaning of 'because') are also correct answers. Am I right?

    Could I ask native English teachers to help me please? Thank you in advance.
