21. St. John’s, Newfoundland, lies on the same latitude

I go with A (2 min!!!! god help me!)

This is a good example on Parallel structure. A maintains the structure throughout (<B> to be sitting, to be bracing, shoveling snow, or seeking </B>)

All the other options change the structure of one of the phrases

I wonder why I took so much time! (and usually I observe that the more the time I take, the more the probability that I get the answer wrong! :( )

A seems to be OA. But I still can't go with "likely to be V.ing"
