The argument that the dominant form of family structure today is not the nuclear family, but rather it is a family which is modified and extended, is based on a number of facts: the existence of three-generational families, the amount of vertical and horizontal communication between family subunits, and the extent to which family members offer assistance to one another.
(A) family, but rather it is a family which is modified and extended, is based on a number of facts: the existence of three-generational families
(B) family, but is instead a family that is modified and extended, is based on a number of facts: three-generational families exist
(C) family, which has been modified and extended, is based on a number of facts: the existence of three-generational families
(D) family but a modified extended family is based on a number of facts: the existence of three-generational families
(E) family, but also a modified and extended family, is based on a number of facts: three-generational families exist

Yeah D makes sense. I believe the sentence is not underlined correctly.

"but" followed by "instead" or "rather" is redundant.
A,B and D are out. C changes the maning of the sentence.

yes , sorry it was not underlined properly.

Use of "but rather " is not redundant. check OG explaination of Q77, Q133.
though OA is D here but i believe that in D "family but a modified extended family " should be followed by " , " and then rest of the sentence. to me A sounds better.

punctuation error is preferable to redundancy that I explained.

I vote for A also, though I don't have OG to double check Q77.
I consider D wrong because "form of family structure today is not the nuclear family" should not be followed by unparallel "family is based".

I also did not find "but rather" in the reduncy list.
