Let's take a look at some of the other issues in this question:
"being" --> This word is almost always wrong. There's really no reason to ever use it unless you're referring to an "alien being" or a "human being." The reason is that it simply does not add any value to the sentence. The following two sentences mean the same thing:
"Because I was being so cold, I put on a jacket."
"Because I was cold, I put on a jacket."
This is a simple example, but notice how the question above plays with this exact same concept.
"yet" --> When we use the conjunction "yet" or "but" we're indicating a contrast:
"I love cheese, but I hate cream cheese." --> There's a contrast here, so I'd use "but" or "yet."
"I love pizza, and I love lasagna." --> No contrast here, so we use "and."
Notice how the answer choices here play with your ability to decide whether you need to use "yet" or "and."
Just wanted to take this question a bit further. It's always good to dissect an OG problem in as many ways as you possibly can.
