A for me. 'Cells adhere to each other...' How? 'beating in unison and adopting specialized orientation'

I was confused between A and D . 'A Peculiar feature' makes it one feature and was a key part of the sentence. I ruled out C because of that -though it may look parallel in the face of it. i was wondering if 'yet' was needed or not. I think 'yet' makes sense. Gosh, this is getting tough!!

when I read the sentence I found not issues with A, but when I read D and saw yet, which, I guess is needed for a peculiar feature. D is my answer. I think it is needed to shouw the contrast that they beat in unison and yet adopt is own orientation.

I do not really understand the purpose of the "yet" here : is it the same meaning as "in addition" ?

I eliminated C because of the key word 'A peculiar feature' in the sentence. C does not seem to explain anything peculiar and gives a rundown of number of things -'adhere to one other', 'beat in unison' and 'adopt whatever'.

A or D seem to explain that the feature is - the cells adhering to each other and how they adhere uniquely.
