+1 B.

A. Although the Broadway musical known as "Hair" contained nudity, strong language, and portrayed anti-war messages, it opened in London only one day after the abolition of theater censorship in 1968-wrong parallelism among the marked ones.

B. Although the Broadway musical known as "Hair" contained nudity, strong language, and anti-war messages, in 1968 it opened in London, only one day after the abolition of theater censorship-looks fine hold

C. Although the Broadway musical known as "Hair" contained nudity, strong language, and anti-war messages, yet it opened in London only one day after the abolition of theater censorship in 1968-parallelism part is ok but the use of although and yet makes it the wrong contender.The right usage is although X,Y.

D. The Broadway musical known as "Hair" contained nudity, strong language, and portrayed anti-war messages, yet it opened in London only one day after the abolition of theater censorship in 1968-wrong parallelism among the marked ones and the same error as in C

E. Although the Broadway musical known as "Hair" contained nudity, strong language, and anti-war messages, still it opened in London in 1968, only one day after the abolition of theater censorship-parallelism part is fine but the use of the word still changes the meaning.So wrong choice

So B is the right choice

B for me... B isn't the best construction but POE leads to B... A & D out for parallelism... C out for although,.. Yet.. E out for yet... Still...

Hi Rahul,

Option A is not parallel:

Although the Broadway musical known as "Hair" contained nudity, strong language, and portrayed anti-war messages, it opened in London only one day after the abolition of theater censorship in 1968

If there would have been an "and" in between, it could have made sense. As we always have "and" before the last item in the list.

I am still not clear as to what is the correct answer. Option B changes the meaning slightly. Doesn't it?

Please explain option A, B and D in detail.
