OE

If you chose (A), the word second verb “adding” is not parallel with the initial verb “chose.” We’re looking for another simple past tense verb to make the sentence correct.

If you chose (B), “adding” is not parallel with the earlier verb “chose” and the phrase “as well as” is wordy. In order to use the idiom “as well as” in this context, we would need to omit the verb “adding.”

If you chose (C), the conjunction “and” and the word “additionally” are redundant. That is, the meaning of one is inherently contained in the other. Look for a more concise choice.

(D) is the correct response. The conjunction “yet” provides the correct meaning by contrasting with the phrase “mostly” in the first-half of the sentence. More importantly, “added” is parallel with “chose.”

If you chose (E), we’d need an article in front of “addition” for this sentence to be grammatically correct, but more importantly changing the verb to a noun doesn’t allow the two halves of the sentence to be parallel.

I think its a D

even the wanted to add 5th dynasty monuments , still he added some 5th dynasty one

still can be used as YET

A. but adding 4th century

B. as well as adding 4th century [are they still adding] doesn't make sense

C. and additionally 4th century [additionally? wrong]

D. yet added some 4th century

E. with addition of 4th century
[with addition of again wrong]

I will go with D as it shows contrast. It shows that Egyptology chose mostly 5th dynasty but yet they added 4th century potter

Calling this OA into doubt... there's no reason to have a comma before yet since it's not the start of an independent clause. Help?

adding ....display must be regarded as noun which needs a verb but there is no verb so the answers with adding must be crossed off (A, B). C and E also make the highlighted sentence as noun which does not make sense for the rest of the sentence. So in my opinion the correct answer must be D.
