Answers

The correct answer is:  [C]:

       "The wind whipped the branches into a frenzy, and it looked like the tree was doing a crazy dance."

The correct answer is B. The wind whipped the branches into a frenzy until it looked like the tree was doing a crazy dance.

Explanation:

A subordinating conjunction is a word mainly use to link dependent clause, which is an incomplete idea that requires another sentence to exist, to an independent clause which expresses a complete idea; subordinating conjunction include words as before, therefore, while, even if, so that and until. Additionally, according to grammar if subordinating conjunction is placed in the middle of a sentence it is not required to use a comma before the conjunction. Considering this, the most appropriate revision that uses a subordinating conjunction is "The wind whipped the branches into a frenzy until it looked like the tree was doing a crazy dance" because it uses a subordinating conjunction that is "Until" and there is no comma or any punctuation mark to join the two clauses or before the subordinating conjunction, which is the correct way according to grammar.

B. The wind whipped the branches into a frenzy until it looked like the tree was doing a crazy dance.

A subordinate conjunction provides a transition between a dependent clause and an independent clause. Options C and D are not correct because they do not have a subordinate conjunction. The sentences combined are both independent clauses. They don't rely on each other to be a complete thought. Option A is also wrong. Subordinate conjunctions should not be surrounded by commas. If a comma is necessary, it should be before the subordinate conjunction or after the dependent clause. Option B is the only one that uses a subordinate conjunction (until) correctly.

B is the best option
If you had a given sentence:

"James could not eat because he was feeling ill." 

"Because" is acting as a subordinating conjunction. A subordinating conjunctions will combine two independent clauses into one sentence, making it a complex sentence.
