78. Although dozens of New York’s small museums are either devoted to local history or various ethnic groups, there are many one-of-a-kind museums from Manhattan to the Bronx that are open for exploration on summer weekends.

Only (C) and (D) are in contention. I do not see any contrast required here in (C) with the use of 'but'. Will go for (D).

I would choose B.

A is not parallel with the expression either...or...
C and D there are make it not parallel
E simply changes the meaning of the sentence.

I will go with D. In the "many one-of-a-kind museums from Manhattan to the Bronx that are open for exploration on summer weekends" that should refer to a pronoun in the sentence ; hence "there are " is required. Also, Although is not required here since we are not comparing anything ; the subordinate clause is just giving an additional information about some of the museums.

Hence D.

D.

No need for contrast, the two parts are nor related in a contrasting way, second part is additional info to first part so "and" is suffucient and although not needed. C, but introduces a contrast which is not needed in this.

D. conjunction "and" is necessary to make this sentence correct. "although" is used to make contrast expression, which does not fit here.
