Could someone please explain why not B

Thanks

B is out because it actually suggests that there may be no proof of electromagnetic fields which distorts the intention on the author.

C is best in my opinion.

C is correct.

(A) of electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances posing any health threat - WRONG because although + clause, not noun phrase.
(B) of electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances that pose any threat to health - WRONG because "that" modifies "appliances", --> change meaning
(C) that electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances pose any threat to health - CORRECT
(D) that poses any threat to health from electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances - WRONG, change meaning, because "that" modifies exists --> doesn't make sense.
(E) for any health threat posed by electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances - WRONG, although + clause, not noun phrase.

Although + clause ==> A, E are out.
B is out because of wrong modifier "....household appliances that pose........"
D is out because of wrong modifier "no proof yet exist that poses.............."
C is correct.

I have spent an entire evening and I see that everyone out here finds this particular question rather easy.. Could someone please point out all the reasons a particular option will be crossed out.. An elaborate explanation will probably help.. thanks so much!!

I think 'E' is not correct because the verb is "posed" which is in past tense - The verb should be "pose" present tense because the subordinate clause tells the facts.

The reasoning is wrong. "Although+clause" is valid. e.g.,
Although I was sick, I went to school..... correct

A and E cannot be eliminated because of the reason stated by pqhai. There is no problem with a subordinate clause starting with "although".

Option A implies that there is no proof of electromagnetic force ( i.e. there is no proof that electromagnetic force exists). The part "generated by household appliances posing any health threat" is a modifier of "electromagnetic force ". However the intended meaning is that no proof exists of the fact the EMF poses threat - this meaning is not conveyed in Option A.

Similarly option E implies that there is no proof of health threat ( i.e. there is no proof that health threat exists). The part "posed by electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances" is a modifier of "health threat ".

E) proof for = eliminated
D) proof that poses any threat = eliminated => proof is not posing any threat
B) household appliances that poses => house hold appliances are not posing any threat Eliminated
A) household appliance posing => ing without comma modifying household appliances Eliminated
C is correct=> proof that em fields( generated by hh appliances )pose any threat to health
