A
For me the close ones were A and E. The question is what was pioneered by the lab - the BEAM robots or the neural chips? The original seems to favor the former, leading my conclusion.

A sentence after a semicolon must by independent and "instead bla bla bla..." is not.

Thoughts on that?
Thanks!

why?
"Instead" is not a subordinator. In A, you have a subject (they) and a main verb (use)

I also picked B rather than A for the same reason that 'instead' make it Independent clause. Gt it now...Do we have some other words like 'instead' that doesnot make any difference to independent clause

A!

DE: Wrong; BEAM Robots is the intended noun for the modifier.
B: Wrong; BEAM Robots can't program their own circuits
C: Wrong; "instead...error" is not an independent clause
