A recent poll indicates that many people in the United States hold a combination of conservative and liberal political views; i.e., they denounce big government, saying government is doing too much and has become too powerful, while at the same time supporting many specific government programs for health care, education, and the environment.

(A) they denounce the big government, saying government is doing too much and has become too powerful, while at the same time supporting

(B) they denounce big government- they say that government is doing too much and has become too powerful-but supporting at the same time

(C) they denounce big government, say that government is doing too much and it has become too powerful, while they support at the same time

(D) while they denounce big government, saying that government is doing too much and has become too powerful, at the same time supporting

(E) while they are denouncing big government- they say that government is doing too much and it has become too powerful-supporting at the same time

Please, provide explanations.

Denounce and supporting are not parallel here. I think one of the choices is missing..only 4 choices have been mentioned. A doesn't look right.


Let me provide some example..

I listen to music while running on treadmill..

In option A we have back to back two modifiers do you think such structure is fine.

(A) they denounce big government,
Modifier 1 : saying government is doing too much and has become too powerful,
Modifier 2 : while at the same time supporting

Clause, ing modifier 1 , ing modifier 2 << is it ok ??

Parallelism- They denounce saying…supporting. A better than C, why? Because supporting is needed to explain the previous clause. We don't want 'denounce' and 'say' to be parallel. We want saying to modify denounce and be parallel with supporting. That's the reason why A iis a much better answer choice

Hope this clarifies
Cheers!

I think it is more about meaning rather than parallelism and modifier...The while usage is incorrect and alters the meaning incorrectly...So A is the best choice...
And now we should look for parallelism and stuff to support the answer..
Had there been an 'And' Instead of 'While'..I guess both options would be correct..(Given that the other errors in C are removed)
