    Since vs Although

    ----, it does not necessarily produce peace, equality, or homogeneity.

    A) If a key feature of globalization has been the transformation of the world economy

    B) Just as globalization has radically altered patterns of trade around the world

    C) Whenever globalization has forced the reorganization of economic enterprises

    D) Since globalization suggests a uniform process, one that operates similarly everywhere

    E) Although globalization means worldwide economic integration


    Can't the answer be D?

    D would be fine thus:

    it does not necessarily produce peace, equality, or homogeneity.
    Peace and equality should be the result of a uniform process. 'Since' anticipates an idea -- expressed by the main clause -- to be consistent with globalization. But the content of the main clause is not consistent with what one might expect from a uniform process.

    EDIT: The main clause is the second half of the sentence, after the comma. I hope you already knew that.
