Florida’s Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail, a mixed-use recreation trail paved over an old rail bed, is a curious paradox: it is not only completely man-made but also designed exclusively for human use, yet is classified as a state park.

is not only completely man-made but also designed exclusively for human use, yet is
not only is completely man-made but also exclusively designed for human use, yet it is
is completely man-made but also exclusively designed for human use, yet
is completely man-made but also has been designed exclusively for human use, yet is
is not only completely man-made but also is exclusively designed for human use, yet


My Doubt is that in A , the last clause "yet is " should be "yet it is " .. since yet is a co-ordinating conjunction it should join two independent clauses , but the correct answer has not it ..
Am is missing something here ??
Experts advice needed.

Read it this way:

Florida’s Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail, a mixed-use recreation trail paved over an old rail bed, is a curious paradox: it is X yet (it) is Y.
This is not // when you use it.

"Yet is" is correct here.
D has incorrect use of but also.

So the correct answer is A.

Does that mean that the sentence below is also correct ??
it is pricy , yet is affordable.
or should it be
it is pricey yet it is affordable.

I think this should be the correct structure. By elimination we can reach A easily.
B) not only is but also exclusively designed ----- not only but also should have parallel parts
C) not only missing.
D) not only missing.
E) not only completely man-made but also is ---- not only but also should have parallel parts

It depends on the exact sentence but it would be correct to say :

......it is pricy , yet is affordable.....
or
......it is pricy yet affordable.

The choice depends on how it is used and how the sentence ends.

"it is pricey yet it is affordable." is wordy.

Hope it helps.

Yes they mean the same. The POE in the above sentence involves the correct use of Not only..but also.
Designed exclusively or exclusively designed won't affect the decision

No need to go into meaning in this question.

is not only completely man-made but also designed exclusively for human use, yet is - is not only X but also Y + POE
not only is completely man-made but also exclusively designed for human use, yet it is - "is" is coming between "not only X" - Rule: Not only is X but also is Y,
is completely man-made but also exclusively designed for human use, yet - no not only for but also.
is completely man-made but also has been designed exclusively for human use, yet is - no not only for but also.
is not only completely man-made but also is exclusively designed for human use, yet - not only X but also is.

Meaning difference:
Phone is designed exclusively for human use. - Modifying Use - Dogs cannot use.
iPhone is exclusively designed for rich people. - modifying designing process.

Hope this helps!

THanks for the responses above!!

I read on a different gmat forum that there was a second issue in which B slightly changed the meaning of the sentence, making B more incorrect.

To me the choice A is also wrong -

Florida’s Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail, a mixed-use recreation trail paved over an old rail bed, is a curious paradox: it is not only completely man-made but also designed exclusively for human use, yet is classified as a state park.

The two statements after colon - "it is not only completely man-made but also designed exclusively for human use" and "yet is classified as a state park" are separated by comma and yet, so these should be two independent clauses, but the second clause is missing a subject (it should be "yet it is"). Can somebody explain how the choice A is correct?

A is also wrong , it violates the grammar rules. The correct should be " It is X yet is Y" or "It is X , yet it is Y."
