Must be B !!

A : is wrong because of 2 reasons , 1 reason : After and ...there is an independent clause ..which is wrong as comma is not present before and , Secondly parallelism error in Both x and Y idiom
B : Correct < rectify both the errors present in A >
C : again IC joined with IC without comma i.e. IC,FANBOYS IC is correct
D : Placement of now is wrong, as it implies that the are showcasing now talents also parallelism
E : now is absent ...intended meaning distorted.

Hope it helps !!

B
