E) !

(A) Seeming to be => modifies what ???
(B) As if => modifies what ???
(C) In that they seemed => "they" is plural, but we need singular (emco) "it"
(D) Although it seemed => changes meaning
(E) Because it seemed to be => right => "it" refers to emco and "because" is appropriate to maintain the meaning

One more for 'E'
Need 'because' to bring out the intented meaning of the sentence.

yes agree with (E).
We don't need a contrast (ALTHOUGH) here.

Another E.

"Because" is needed to make the second part of the sentence connect logically.
