Although Eden park is more better known than Jolly park, the designer of both the parks, Jerry Lawler, had a preference for Jolly park.

(A) Although Eden park is more better known than Jolly park, the designer of both the parks, Jerry Lawler, had a preference for Jolly park
(B) Eden park being better known than Jolly park, the designer of both, Jerry Lawler, preferred the latter
(C) Although not as well known as Eden park, Jolly park, the designer of both the parks, Jerry Lawler, had a preferencefor it. (weird structure)
(D) The designer of both Eden park and Jolly park is Jerry Lawler, he preferred Jolly park
(E) Although Eden park is better known than Jolly park, the designer of both the parks, Jerry Lawler, preferred Jolly park

In A "more better" is clearly wrong, in B "being" is awkward.
C has an unclear structure, D could be right but "he" is not necessary and the comma is not the right connector.
IMO E

E.

A->"more better" is incorrect.
B->There is no 'relation' between the two parts - Eden park is better than Jolly park AND Jerry preferred the Jolly park. The meaning of the sentence is changed.
C->Awkward construction
D->The stress of the sentence changes to telling you that the designer is Jerry. Also, the original meaning "Although X, (but) Y" is changed.
E->Retains the original meaning and conveys the correct relationship between the clauses. Correct.

(A) Although Eden park is more better known than Jolly park, the designer of both the parks, Jerry Lawler, had a preference for Jolly park - No need to use MORE along with BETTER.
(B) Eden park being better known than Jolly park, the designer of both, Jerry Lawler, preferred the latter - No need to use the passive voice
(C) Although not as well known as Eden park, Jolly park, the designer of both the parks, Jerry Lawler, had a preference for it. No antecedent is present for IT. Moreover, this option changes the meaning
(D) The designer of both Eden park and Jolly park is Jerry Lawler, he preferred Jolly park - This option is a Run-on as two independent clauses are connected with comma.
(E) Although Eden park is better known than Jolly park, the designer of both the parks, Jerry Lawler, preferred Jolly park - Correct

So answer has to be E.

IMO E - correct comparison of both parks and use of simple past preferred

A - more better
B - being
C - not clear "the designer of both the parks" is modifying what
D - distorts the intended comparative meaning of original sentence

E for me

(A) Past perfect is not needed when stating something
(B) Run-on
(C) Past Perfect and misuse of Although.
(D) Run-on

Concepts Tested – Meaning, Redundancy, Pronoun reference, Run-on
The use of ‘more’ and ‘better’ in the original sentence is redundant, so eliminate
A.

B is awkward and unclear and fails to make any logical sense

C - It appears as though ‘Jolly Park’ is the designer of both the parks. Also the
use of ‘it’ is ambiguous

D is a run on sentence because it uses a comma to connect two independent
clauses

E puts the modifying phrases in their correct places and is the best answer.
