Here we do not need to show contradiction between the types of museum so Although and but are wrong(A,B,C eliminated).

Between D & E , E seems awkward thus D wins

Hope it helps

Abhishek

45. Although dozens of New York’s small museums are either devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, there are many one-of-a-kind museums from Manhattan to the Bronx that are open for exploration on summer weekends.

The sentence basically saying "although there are all these museums that are similar, there are also many museums in New York that are unique and (open in the summer)".

Therefore, we are not trying to 'counter' the first clause by using "although", we are simply trying to introduce that are are also other museums that you can see in New York that are unique. So you can rule out A and B.


(A) Although dozens of New York’s small museums are either devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, there are
Not parallel - the correct phrase needs to be "either (Devoted to x) or ([verb] to y)." This is missing the second parallel verb.

(B) Although dozens of New York’s small museums are devoted to local history or various ethnic groups,
Explained above, we are not trying to combat the first clause.

(C) Dozens of New York’s small museums are devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, but there are
As mentioned above, we are not trying to counter the first clause, so "but" is incorrect.

(D) Dozens of New York’s small museums are devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, and there are also
Non-combative introduction of the second clause. Correct.

(E) Devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, dozens of New York’s small museums and also
The sentence incorrectly assigns the modifier "devoted to local history or various ethnic groups" to the whole clause that it touches ("dozens of New York's small museums and also many one-of-a-kind .....weekends." Clearly the author does not intend to say that dozens of museums AND many one-of-a-kind business are devoted to the same thing, or the businesses would not be "one-of-a-kind"!
Mt take (A).
