Question deals with parallel errors.

A, B, E is out...not parallel to the rest of the sentence. need "ing"

Down to C and D. Not quite sure --->

Going with C

I think the answer is C.

It can't be D because childrens' is grammatically wrong.

C here.

Children is already plural. Childrens is not a word. Therefore the apostrophe goes before the possessive "s".

I think it's C. "The children" is single, thus "children's". Also, establishing needs to be used to stay parallel with the rest of the sentence - helping, providing, establishing. Not "the establishing".

What's the OA?
