hi..

you have to look at the parallelism between two parts of sentence connected by BUT..

At their birthday party, the twins were eager to begin opening their presents X but quickly tiring of the project as the novelty of new toys wore off. Y....

lets see the choices..

At their birthday party, the twins were eager to begin opening their presents but quickly tiring of the project as the novelty of new toys wore off.

two ways..
At their birthday party, the twins were eager to begin opening their presents but the twins were QUICK TO TIRE of the project as the novelty of new toys wore off.
B follows the pattern
At their birthday party, the twins were eager to begin opening their presents but the twins quickly tired of the project as the novelty of new toys wore off.
C and D are not exactly follow this..
C. tire quickly... change in tense - tired to tire
D. tired quick... change from adverb to adjective - quickly to quick

B
