"peculiar" signals that the sentence should carry the original meaning and then deviate at a point.

D it is...."yet" is the word which does this and also is parallel

Eliminate B: Run on Sentence. IC, IC.
Eliminate E: Although syntax is right, IC, DC. It doenst have they "contrast" shown by D.
Eliminate C: make it a list of "features"....That is not what the author is trying to say.
Between A and D, i chose D. Although both are abosolute phrases describing how "cells" behave, AC D shows the constrast with D.

I go with D because 'yet' here shows the contrast that cells beat in unison but have mutually exclusive orientations.
A,C and E rejected for not showing contrast and B rejected as in B, 2 independent clauses are separated by a comma instead of a semicolon
