"B"

a,d,e is out because they use the word "fact"

C is close but the second phrase is awkward.

C/D "with" are also wrong

I picked B, though I am probably not the right person to explain the construction of the sentence.

I didn't really like B at first b/c "that" at the begining. However, I did like "resemble and look" so elim ACD. One thing I did notice right after this is that B is the only sentence with "While"

"while" logically states the difference between the two types of twins.


So B.

B - That some fraternal twins resemble each other greatly while others look quite dissimilar highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely that they vary considerably.

It might sound awkward at the beginning, since it begins with "That," but reading on there are no mistakes.

A: The fact of... is not an idiom, "The fact that some twins..." IS.
C: "It highlights" has no clear reference.
D: Same
E: lack of parallism in the first clause, don't know what "this fact" refers to as there are 2 facts layed out.

When you include "that" or "those" in a sentence it helps the reader understand what you are referencing to.

A D E out because of the use of "the Fact'

Between B and C

C was a good contendor but the second part sounds awkward

So will go with: B
