Parallelism !


E has tense problems and ellipsis

The only thing that has to be done with cattle is "to" leave them alone

C Too many "and's" !!

B. parallelism

to leave them, to corral them and " " drive them

A . again parallelism

leave them, corral them and "to" drive them

Answer is D...for perfect parallelism.


if anyone has a better explanation, please do share with us.

I think that E and D are both wrong because they start with "the only thing" and then they mention more than one thing.

From A,B and C the best one is C.

I pick B.
because A, C, D, E are putting "is" and "leave" together.

But B is not perfect. It would be better if there is an "to" after "and." But GMAT is not looking for perfect answer but the best answer.

We can narrow to C and D.
D clearly change the meaning and worng. The only thing is A, B, and C :cry:
C has many end but they are in perfect correct. "... leave them and THEN (corral and drive)..." = do one thign and Then (do 2 more things)
