I think is A. "Beating... and adopting" sounds like a modifier. OA?

(A) beating in unison and adopting -> not good,no contrast present
(B) they beat in unison while adopting -> they is not reqd
(C) beat in unison, and adopt -> this is wrong ,same as A
(D) beating in unison yet adopting -> this is PERFECT since it presents a contrast
(E) even though they beat in unison and adopt -> this is wrong

I chose C bcos of parallism but its not OA

Between A and D D wins since contrast is presented

My pick is D.

A peculiar feature of the embryonic mammalian circulatory system is that in the area of the heart the cells adhere to one another, beating in unison and adopting specialized orientations exclusive of one another.
(A) beating in unison and adopting
- the sentence is trying to show contrast, so "and" does not work here.

(B) they beat in unison while adopting
- what is "they"?

(C) beat in unison, and adopt
- the sentence is trying to show contrast, so "and" does not work here.

(D) beating in unison yet adopting
- looks good to me

(E) even though they beat in unison and adopt
- double whammy - who is "they"? "and" does not show contrast
