    so/but/for

    New scientific discoveries are being made every day of the week,___78___unlike in other ages, new ideas are quickly applied in practical ways.

    A but
    B so
    C for

    Why is A the only correct answer here? Can't I just use B and C as well?

    Re: so/but/for

    'But' introduces a comparison or contrast, unlike so or for.

    These days, new discoveries are quickly applied in practical ways — in the past, they weren't.
