IMO E as it looks to be the most concise.

However, I have one question:

Is there any parallelism to be maintained with words like although, though, even though etc..?

Please help with some examples if possible.

IMO E.
The original sentence has incorrect comparison between students in New York and London.
It should have been students in New York and those/students in London.
Also the correct idiom to be used here is Although X, Y....
Only E presents the sentence in correct format.

Yes, some good points above.

FYI, as an additional note - for (B): the pace of people learning physics is about the same in New York and in London

can be improved to:

"the pace of people learning physics is about the same in New York as it is in London..."

facts should be presented in simple present tense. So B,C and D are out. Between A and E, E wons because A has comparison error.
