Two equivalent answers are usually both wrong.

The difference between using a semicolon between two clauses and a period with a capital letter is minimal.

“Even though” and “Though” are essentially interchangeable if used as subordinating conjunctions at the beginning of a sentence.

“Initially” and “Originally” are pretty much synonyms.

In cases such as this, when you must choose between two interchangeable ideas– both with the same tone, the same connotation, the same length, and the same effect– BOTH are usually wrong answers (unless of course it’s a question asking which of the following is LEAST acceptable…be careful!).

When you’re in doubt, you can use this concept to help you narrow choices on the ACT English section.  This doesn’t happen all that often on the test, but can be of help on some questions.
