contrast is necessary for the meaning, so answers including "yet" are only valid. this eliminates A,B and D.

E is the right answer, although "be" may seem awkward because 'being' in C is not matching the tense of the previous sentences (lack of agreement with improve).

I think it is a low to intermediate level question.
