B for me. Rest are not parallel and they also slightly change the meaning.


Pls correct me if I am wrong.

C also unfortunately smartphones, they are the cell phones that permit
D unfortunately also smartphones, which are the cell phones that permit
E unfortunately, so too are smartphones, the cell phones that permit


This is the case when it is better to start from the coorect option.

1. E. Correct.
"unfortunately, so too are smartphones, the cell phones that permit"
We have the parethesis word "unfortunately" with comma. Thes sentence is precise and clear. Our choice.
2. A. Out.
2.1. "unfortunately" in a wrong place.
2.2. "permitting" - it is not the right tense. We need Present Simple.
3. B. Out.
Not that bad. But. Too wordy. Why do we need 2 independent sentences, when we can use only one as in E.
4. C. Out.
Same as 3.
5. D. Out.
Same as 3.
