For me it was a choice between A and C. I am going for A. C is close, but seems to change the meaning of the sentence.

I think C is a run-on sentence.

A does the trick (with "but" acting as a conjunction?)

Quick question: The sentence has 'but' highlighted, but answer choice A does not have a 'but' in it. Is 'but' part of the underlined section or not?

With 'but' as part of the underlined section: Choice A
With 'but' not part of the underlined section: Choice C.

(A)

Without "but" all other options create run-on sentences.
