Discussion:
How to use but-

1. Clause + COMMA + BUT + Clause, where the clauses are independent.

On the basis of this, the options A and B can be eliminated.

2.The pronoun "they" has more than one antecedents.

A and E can be eliminated for ambiguous "they".


3. A clause cannot be antecedent of "it".

It was more likely....

What does "it" refer to?

"15 percent of them experienced night terrors" is the logical antecedent of "it". Here, a clause has been used as an antecedent of it.

We can eliminate A and C.

Answer is D.

It was a tricky question, not an easy one.

Are we sure that the underlying part starts from the word "but" ? I really don't think so...it doesn't make any sense at all.
