The resident cannot lack plumbing, makes no sense. Their homes can though. And nothing is grammatically too wrong with B.

Took a ton of time to figure this one out though!

shouldnt it be temperatures plural in answer choice B? I've never seen temperature referred to in a singular sense when describing multiple temperatures...

A. region; nevertheless, temperatures regularly drop below -60℃, and many residents lacking plumbing --> contrast missing

B. region, with temperature regularly dropping below -60℃; nevertheless, many residents. lacking plumbing in their homes, --> correct

C. region; nevertheless, with temperatures dropping regularly below -60℃, many residents lack plumbing, so --> "with temperatures dropping ..." "many residents" doesn't make sense, "B" is better

D. region; temperatures regularly drop below -60℃ and many residents lack plumbing, nevertheless, they --> duplicate subjects: "many residents" & "they"

E. region; temperature drop regularly below -60℃, nevertheless, many residents lack plumbing and thus --> missing the contrast
