Straight E.
the new airfare.....also shortens.
Also, lessens is incorrect as "shorten the number of days" should be the correct structure.

Why is the usage of AND in option A wrong?

Because the sentence would lack a main verb in this case.

The structure would look like this:

Quote:
"The new airfare, which allows X and also shortens Y."



The correct structure looks like this:

Quote:
The new airfare, which allows X, also shortens Y."


In this case the main verb is "shortens".
