hi lucky,

why C is wrong..
C) Although they are more expensive to set up than fossil fuel power, solar energy and wind energy are two examples, both of which could supply easily all of the US's energy needs, alternative energy source
firstly they is incorrectly modifying solar eneregy and wind energy, whereas it is supposed to modify alternative energy source..
secondly 'such as' is a better than 'are two examples'

Although more expensive to set up than fossil fuel power, alternative energy sources, such as solar energy and wind farms, both of which could easily supply all of the US's energy needs, they would provide vast savings over time, not only in direct upkeep, but also medical costs due to lower cancer rates.

A) Although more expensive to set up than fossil fuel power, alternative energy sources, such as solar energy and wind farms, both of which could easily supply all of the US's energy needs, they
Incorrect. Although is a subordinate conjunction, so it demands a clause.
B) Although alternative energy sources, such as solar energy and wind farms, both of which easily could supply all of the US's energy needs, are more expensive to set up than fossil fuel power, they
Correct.
C) Although they are more expensive to set up than fossil fuel power, solar energy and wind energy are two examples, both of which could supply easily all of the US's energy needs, alternative energy sources
Incorrect. Unclear to what the pronoun "they" is referring to, and the structure overall is awkward.
D) Exemplified by solar energy and wind farms, both of which easily could supply all of the US's energy needs, alternative energy sources are more expensive to set up than fossil fuel power, they
Incorrect. Run-on clauses, i.e. there is no connector between the two clauses.
E) Alternative energy sources, such as solar energy and wind farms, both of which could supply easily all of the US's energy needs, although they are more expensive to set up than fossil fuel power, they
Incorrect. Double subject mistake. [noun] [modifier] [noun] [predicate].

option B should be the right answer.
the problem with C is that the pronoun they refers to solar energy instead of alternative energy sources so wrong .
