B

Parallel + Maintains Though X, Y idiom.

D is wrong because it says 'viewed' then switches to 'viewing'.

I just read another thread on this.

Someone brought up the point that "in fact... though" construction is redundant. It brings the choices down to D and E.

D is an easy pick.

Another (D).

Other choices project that the closer viewing changes the composition.
