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.

Although students in New York learn physics at a pace similar to London, their standardized test scores are far lower in New York.

Below are the steps I took to sort through this questions. I appreciate any feedback.

(A) students in New York learn physics at a similar pace to London, their
Their is ambiguous and redundant, with New York at the end it should read "the"

(B) the pace of people learning physics is about the same in New York and in London, the
pace is poorly placed and used

(C) physics is learned by students in New York at a similar pace to London's, their
Their is ambiguous and redundant, with New York at the end it should read "the"

(D) the pace of learning physics in New York and London is about the same, the

(E) students in New York and London learn physics at about the same pace, the

1. Eliminate A and E because of ", their"
2. Eliminate B, pace placement
3. Eliminate D, "paces is the same" should read as "paces are the same"
4. Choose Option E.
