Official Solution:

Being that he is most famous for creating exquisite jewelry, Louis Comfort Tiffany was also an important innovator in the fields of architecture and interior design during the Art Nouveau movement of the early 20th century.

A. Being that
B. Because
C. Whenever
D. Although
E. Notwithstanding the fact that

This sentence contrasts the activity for which Tiffany is most famous with the fact that he was also an important innovator in other fields. Because of this, the conjunction that begins the sentence must also show contrast.
  1. Being that implies a causal relationship, which does not make sense in the sentence.
  2. The word because does not make sense in the sentence, since creating jewelry does not cause innovation in other fields.
  3. Whenever does not make sense in the sentence.
  4. The word although correctly establishes a contrast between Tiffany’s fame and his innovative work in other areas.
  5. This option creates contrast, but it is unnecessarily wordy.

Answer: D

Hi Bunuel, thank you for your explanation.

But here I really doubt the facts of "someone is a, also someone is b" is a relationship of contrast. I think relationship like "someone is not a, but b" is a contrast. But "someone is a, also b" is a relationship of progressive.

Have you ever found other examples in OG that "someone is a, also b" is a contrast?

Kind regards,

Anna

The contrast is that Louis Comfort Tiffany was famous for creating exquisite jewelry, but was also an important innovator...architecture and interior design. Comparing unrelated fields of work is the contrast here. An analogy could be that you would expect a physicist to win a physics bowl, but you would not expect a physicist to win a economics quiz.

Also, any day D over E. E is more wordy.
