B.

to me, flatly is not correct adverb. Flat is correct(irregular adverb where its not suffixed by -ly).

B is concise.

D. uses of "there being" is awkward

In A "it" doesn't have a clear reference. The reference for "it" can be both "traditional Japanese household and clothing". A is wrong. In E we are comparing "no elaborate closet facilities" with "traditional Japanese household", which is wrong. D is wron because we wrongly use the past tense. Between B and C, B is better. "There was no necessity" is wordy and less concise than "elaborate closet facilities were unnecessary". B is the correct answer.

Well, A. C and E are wrong due to the use of "flatly" ...it should be " flat" . Think of the case of "keep" , after "keep", there should be an adjective; for example:Everything in the room was kept tidy.D should be avoided due to the use of "being"

I go for B.

I also got B. ETS always prefers unnecessary over not necessary.

Another B

We have B and D from POE. D is out because of "being" and B is more concise/clear.

Example:
a lovely dinner
NOT a dinner lovely

Therefore, ACE are wrong. BD are left. being is hardly ever correct on the GMAT.

"packed" is actually a verb in this case. Adverbs (in a context) such as "fast", "flat", "high" are used without "+ly"
E.g. -He runs fast (Incorrect: He runs fastly)
-Throw high (Incorrect: throw highly)
