Explanation

here the key word to look is the very first word Although .

This signals a contrast incoming; actually, soon we will have a shift in the second part of the sentence. So, if you do have a positive tone in the first part, then follow a negative word to fill the blank in the second part of the same.

A and B are positive word and E is out of scope. The station does not overshadow anything. looking at D could be the answer but at a close look it is still positive in its meaning. C means weaken.

C is best
