B.

introductory phrase modifies: machine-based research it should come right after comma.

C. error in meaning; reserch is said to have lower quality rather than compounds

This SC tests the use of modifier.
What is "more expensive than manual research" must be "machine-based research" ----> B and C stand.

C contains wrong comparison of " machine-based research" to " compounds indentified" ---> out.

B is the correct answer.

My answer is B as well.

The first sentence is modifying research and not compounds....B makes the right comparisons
