For God's sake why (B) is wrong?!!!

By the way, are there any rules one has to follow in using "Although" word.

The way I see it A,B and C are wrong because there is no relation between the fact that "museums are devoted to local history..." and the fact that "they are open for exploration.."

These are two separate facts. So you can't use "althoguh" or "but".

(A) Although dozens of New York's small museums are either

(B) Although dozens of New York's small museums are devoted

(C) Dozens of New York's small museums are devoted to local

(E) Devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, dozens

A look at the answer choices reveals that there is a change in the tone of the sentence in some of them.

This is clearly a USAGE issue.

when will i use although?

Although it rains in washington most of the year, it does not affect day o day life.
Although he was a very good guy, his habits made him very unpopular.
Although the venture is risky, the returns are amazing.
Although he was sick, he showed up at work in the morning.

So i would expect although to set up the sentence is this way

Although there are dozens of museums devoted to local history in NYC, many groups accude the administration of failure to preserve local history.

so A and B will not be useful here.

E is poor usage..there is no proper link between the first and second parts of the sentence

C is close....But should provide some opposite info..

There are many motels here, but none of them are cheap.
I can come, but i am very busy.
They drove very fast to the airport,but they missed the flight.

here the second part of the sentence provides more info..so AND is best...

D looks ok... i am not sure about there are "also"..but it is the least of the evils...so i would go with D too

Two separate facts no need of although and but. A, B and C are out. E is awkward.
Ans. D
