why does "C" lack parallelism? I thought it only applies to the 2nd term and beyond? Also, don't we need which becacuse the clause in non-restrictive?

"which include establishment of ....., the closing of ...., and requiring ....to...,".
I think, this phrase completely lacks parall.
Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

My choice is B.

Hope I'm right. I've bolded the words that are required for parallelism.
Includes is meant for NUMBER as underlined.

A number is always plural...So you need "include" as the verb...But here D has the best parallelism structure

Why don't we need the word "which" to introduce the clause?

In this question if we try to introduce "which" we would be affecting the parallelism...

A and B are grammatically incorrect. " a number of remedies" is plural. So include should be used instead of includes. Hence A and B are wrong
C lacks parallel structure
D has parallel structure. establishing...., closing....,and requiring
E is wrong. Author is talking abour size limits of shark catch rather tha size of shark

I'm sure the answer is B.
The parallel construction there sounds best.
I'm a little bit unsure about "a number of ... verbe+s", but I'l go for it :)

B cannot be correct because WHICH refers to "a number of remedies", a plural, so the verb INCLUDE should be used instead of INCLUDES.

D's gotta be the answer.

D has to be

A, B, and C are out because of Non restrictive clause usage...

E is not parallel, missing a last THE in the list.

Alas, one more for D! I do not like "which" following "shark population." Hopefully I have seen enough of these to know that the gerund is always best after the comma if there is no direct link to the noun before the comma.

I choose C for '-ing' parallelism. D is also tempting but I don't think it maintains parallelism - 'establishment of...' 'closing of...' 'requiring...'

A & B - Incorrect Subj. - Verb agreement

D, with GMATT73 and laxieqv.
A, B and C - "which" may refer to "decline in the shark population".

D is the best choice. Concise, parallel and does not have ambuguity in the use of 'which'

The best answer is D. its parallel , A and B have S-V agreement errors, C is not parallel since it uses noun forms and the sentence calls for -ing forms.
