sayantanc2k, Bunuel, GMATNinja - I follow the explanations above. My view regrading option D and E is - the word 'certainly' in first part of sentence is looking for contrast such as despite or even though. It means to Even though she is not as efficient she is certainly progressive. Same goes with 'despite'.

I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation. She is an ambiguous pronoun. "She" could refer to either the new mayor or her predecessor. Something needs to clear up who is less efficient.

Hi,

I did not understand why option B is incorrect. Even though 'however' is not required in option B, using it does not make the sentence incorrect either.

Though both option A & D are grammatically correct but option A is more close to meaning conveyed by the original sentence.
Yes it is true that the intended meaning of the words such as though, despite or but can be daunting to some people, so in such scenarios always go for the option which uses the words that are as close as possible to the words mentioned in the original sentence.
