You make mistake when posting this question although correct choice is D. I presupposed that "and" before "spending" in choice D does not exist. Because spending should modify the action "require doctors to see more patients", "and" here is incorrect.

I chose E as well. My SC is not consistently at the 700 lvl though. D just sounds very awkward to me

e). that impose stricter limits on medical services, requiring doctors to see more patients and spending

There is definitely typo in answer choices. If the and is removed before spending, D would be the right answer.

impose = require, then spending modifies the clause starting require.. hope this helps

Please refer to the above link; there are 57 posts on this topic running to 3 pages. I wonder what more is required.

Let me remind freshers that most of the questions they ask these days have already been thoroughly discussed in this forum. Please avail them and benefit, becos, there are opinions from great many experts such as as Brian, Parker, and Adams et all, in those threads. Freshers shouldn't miss them.

Its all the matter of how you structure and look at three verbs.

E puts impose at a separate level and require and spend at a lower level together essentially meaning

imposing the stricter limit in medical services
requires doctors to see more patient and the doctor spends less time ..

And D puts it differently. here
impose the stricter limits in medical services and require doctors to see more patients
which basically force doctors to spend less time with patient.

So IMO D is better than E though I chosen E

How can D be the answer when it violates the principle of parallelism?? This question is also part of the 150 hardest sc... well, of course it is one of the hardest if it is phrased wrong and is thus impossible to solve
