216. Computers are becoming faster, more powerful, and more reliable, and so too are modems, they are the devices to allow two or more computers to share information over regular telephone lines.
(A) so too are modems, they are the devices to allow
(B) so too are modems, the devices that allow
(C) so too modems, the devices allowing
(D) also modems, they are the devices that allow
(E) also modems, which are the devices to allow

OA is B, does this help?

thanks. very tricky

"and also" is redundant, but "and so too" is not redundant...

in addition to being idiomatic, is this testing llism too?

B looks better but concern about "the devices" - Isn't it confusing except if I assume it is close to model so devices means modem
