Easy Question.

We need to say although it's a systems company, it supplements its sales with something else.

Only D and E have the verb after "comma, but".

"They" in E is wrong. Hence, Answer is D.

Allied Signal is mainly a systems company, yet supplementing its control systems sales with sales of field instruments such as pressure and temperature transmitters.

A) yet supplementing – ing modifier cannot come with yet.

B) although it supplementing – Awkward construction. Sentences starting with although are subordinate clauses and need a sub + verb.

C) supplementing - Contrast is missing.

D) but it supplements – Correct Answer.

E) but they supplement – Allied Signal is singular and they is plural.

Imo D
A , B and C are fragments .
E is wrong because allied signal is a single company
So D is our answer .

Mainly - gives us an understanding, that has to be some contrast there.

A) yet supplementing - akward

B) although it supplementing - not in such form (although it supplements - sounds good - what do you think?)

C) supplementing - not any contrat provided

D) but it supplements - good

E) but they supplement - company - it, not they

Allied Signal is mainly a systems company, yet supplementing its control systems sales with sales of field instruments such as pressure and temperature transmitters.

A) yet supplementing - yet +verb-ing is incorrect

B) although it supplementing - although needs subject(it) + verb -

C) supplementing - Illogical usage of ing modifier - contrast is lost

D) but it supplements - Correct

E) but they supplement - They can't refer to singular Allied Signal

Answer D
