+1 for E.

(A) supplies and so light

(B) supplies so light

(C) supplies, and it was so light

(D) supplies, yet being so light

(E) supplies, yet so light --> Correct, shows contrast and conveys intended meaning

Hence, E.

that even a seventh-grader could wear it comfortably- this part tells we are looking for contrast indicator.

So A, B and C out.

'being' in D is redundant.

Ans : E

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



What makes this backpack so apparently wonderful is its surprising combination of qualities: it can carry all this stuff without becoming too heavy and unwieldy to use. The original sentence does not express the contrast that creates the beauty of this object because it connects information about the backpack's abilities and its ergonomics with the word and. Choices (D) and (E) provide better options by including yet, a word that, as you surely know from your Reading Comprehension practice, describes a contrast. (E) is better than (D) since being is unnecessary. Go with (E).
