IMO C) "but so" looks parallel. please post OA.

I will go with C as well

You need but to provide a contrast
C - correct use of tense

Also ,unemployment and prices is a plural subject , so usage of have

(A) but unemployment and prices too
(B) and also unemployment and prices
(C) but so have unemployment and prices
(D) and so also unemployment and prices
(E) but so did unemployment and prices

to show the contrast 'but ' is required instead of 'and', so B & D out.
among A, C, E, C is best as uses correct tense and the 'have' agrees with the plural subject 'unemployment and prices'

318. From 1965 on, Yugoslavia’s standard of living has soared, but unemployment and prices too.
(A) but unemployment and prices too
(B) and also unemployment and prices
(C) but so have unemployment and prices
(D) and so also unemployment and prices
(E) but so did unemployment and prices

Would go with B... as thats the most decent option available... although not entirely preferred in GMAT....

IMO - B vs D -> I go with D

A, B and E are out becuase of "but". But show contradiction. you do not want cotrdiction here

(A) but unemployment and prices too

But shows contradiction. We do not want contradiction here

(B) and also unemployment and prices

(C) but so have unemployment and prices
But shows contradiction. We do not want contradiction here. Also have is wrong

(D) and so also unemployment and prices
correct

(E) but so did unemployment and prices
But shows contradiction. We do not want contradiction here

What is the OA ?

Need contradiction clearly. So, B and D out.
E out because of DID
Btw A and C choose A.

My take is C

This sentence definitely need contradiction

From 1965 on , that means this sill continues ... so have is required

(E) but so did unemployment and prices

'but' - contradicts and hence out.
I needed a 'and so have'. Hence, between B and D , IMO B ---- 'so' is absurd in D
Not sure.

Wats the OA ???

IMHO, parallelism is tested here.
....standards of living HAS SOARED, but so HAVE [SOARED] unemployment and prices.

Regarding, BUT SO it is assumed that regardless soared standards of leaving <THIS IS GOOD>, unemployment and prices have also increased <THIS IS BAD>.
Hope it hepls.

From 1965 on, Yugoslavia’s standard of living has soared, but unemployment and prices too.
(A) but unemployment and prices too
(B) and also unemployment and prices

(C) but so have unemployment and prices
(D) and so also unemployment and prices
(E) but so did unemployment and prices

A new technique to crack this SC:

Grammar:
Two clause can be joined by the following ways:
1. Comma + FANBOYS (For, and, but, or, yet, so):
=> I am eating, and he is drinking.
2. Semicolon (;):
=>I am eating; he is drinking.
3. Semicolon (;)+ Conjunctive Adverb +Comma +Clause.
I am eating; then, he is drinking.

List of conjunctive adverbs:
accordingly, furthermore, moreover, similarly,
also, hence, namely, still,
anyway, however, nevertheless, then,
besides, incidentally, next, thereafter,
certainly, indeed, nonetheless, therefore,
consequently, instead, now, thus,
finally, likewise, otherwise, undoubtedly,
further, meanwhile.
4. Period + Capital:
=> I am eating. He is drinking.

Now, come to the sentence:
After comma, there is a FANBOYS. So, we need a clause, and a clause must have a subject and a verb. OPtions A, B, and D do not have verb. So, they are out. In the option E, the verb "did" is not parallel with the verb "has".
Answer is C.

From... on, we need a 'perfect' tense.
We need 'but' to show the comparison between standard of living and unemployment and prices (yes, opposite situations).
B and D are out because they don't use 'but'.
A is out because it uses but... too.
E is out because of wrong tense 'did', should be 'have'. C is correct.
