B

in "C" but should should suggest point of difference between the two subjects - but there is none in the statement.

C for me, in D the comma is not neccessary if there is no contrast needed

(C) Dozens of New York’s small museums are devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, but there are

(E) Devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, dozens of New York’s small museums and also


OK having a look at it again.

Let's do POE.
E is wrong

From the original sentence - a comparison is being made. "although" there is one thing here there are other things there.

Through that logic D is out is it is "and" so it is adding or including....
B is wrong because the statement becomes..

Although dozens of New York’s small museums are devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, many one-of-a-kind museums from Manhattan to the Bronx that are open for exploration on summer weekends.

"that" in this statement is incorrext

We are left with "A" & "C"

C uses "but" which suggestions a harsher tone of exception .... Sally scored a distinction in Math BUT failed Science.

There is not such a case in this.

So we are left with A?

Please advise OA.

If the original context is "although"

This is the sentence # 78 from 1,000 SC. So OA is D.
