The ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle implied that such contradictions are virtually essential to the tragic personality, and yet critics keep coming back to this element of inconsistency as though it were an eccentric feature of Webster’s own tragic vision

"and yet" is an expression which should be read together, meaning "even though".

Still implies that the activity is still continuing, the correct usage here should be 'yet'. So options D and E are out.
Comma is expected because of two independent clauses. Option C out.

Now between A and B, I chose A. I found both options correct but option A weighed in more. I may be wrong but I believe the two clauses are not parallel in 'Aristotle implied' and 'critics keep coming back'. 'Yet' demands parallelism. However, 'and+comma' can disregard the parallelism.
Need expert opinion to confirm my understanding.

Can anyone please explain why "b" is wrong. As per fanboys "yet" need to be correct and adding "and" with yet make it redundant. Also, this statement is presenting a contrast so i think only "yet" is also fine.

Anyone please explain :)
