(D)..there is a peculiarity here thus yet must be included. E.g, the car was moving fast, yet its speed didn't exceed 45m/h

(A) beating in unison and adopting
(B) they beat in unison while adopting
(C) beat in unison, and adopt
(D) beating in unison yet adopting
(E) even though they beat in unison and adopt


B - "they" does not correctly refer to "a peculiar feature"
C - need beating and adopting to modify "a peculiar"
E - "even though" is inappropriate here, "they" is not good like the case in B

D & A are good, but D is better and makes better sense beacuse of "peculiar" that modifies "the embryonic mammalian circulatory system".

So my answer is D.

Folks,

I need assistance on this:-)I chose (c) for the //ism reason:
adhere____,beat ____, and adopt ____
+++

By choosing (d) would we not nulllify the need for the sentence to be //.
I am puzzled.Tx.

Here we are dealing with an apositive phrasesmodifying noun clause cells adhere to one another

choice C gives you the two parallel particle phrases (beating in unison) & (adopting orientations exclusive of one another)
coordinating conjunction "yet" highlights the contrast between the two.
