To understand this question one should refer MGMAT SC
, chapter 11.
Bouquet of flower is giving of love. This sentence is incorrect because we can not make gerund noun parallel with proper noun.
Similarly proper noun is allowed to be parallel only to proper noun.
In (A) Attaining can't be parallel to infinitive noun to enter. Similarly in (B) to attain
entering. E is super wrong.
So we are between C and D.
(C) to attain nirvana is enter a state of supreme liberation. I hold this choice because I know that "to err is human" is a correct sentence, but enter is a verb not noun therefore C should be wrong as well.
(D) to attain nirvana is to enter a state of supreme liberation. D is most parallel and correct answer as well.
According to the teachings of the Buddhist and Hindu religions, attaining nirvana is to enter a state of supreme liberation, leaving behind the desires that perpetuate the cycle of death and rebirth.
(A) attaining nirvana is to enter
(B) to attain nirvana is entering
(C) to attain nirvana is
(D) to attain nirvana is to enter
(E) attaining nirvana is to be entering
