114. Ancient Romans found it therapeutic to bathe in cold milk, in strawberries that had been crushed, or in bathtubs filled with black caviar.
(A) to bathe in cold milk, in strawberries that had been crushed, or in bathtubs filled with black caviar
(B) that they bathe in cold milk, in strawberries that had been crushed, or in caviar that was black
(C) to bathe in cold milk, crushed strawberries, or black caviar
(D) that they bathe in cold milk, crushed strawberries, or black caviar
(E) to bathe in milk , strawberries, or caviar

Is "in bathtubs filled with black caviar" really equal to "black caviar" ? :oops:

A has redundant words
B and D that they is wrong
E omit adjectives

C for parallelism
adj + noun, adj + noun, adj + noun

==============================================
C or E ..I would go with C on exam day; but I can bet some money on E 2!
how can E be wrong -looks OK to me ..But, as we need to pick the best answer, I would go with C for the simple reason that it makes a strong and vivid statement compared to E which is too bland...will wait for the OA

Well crushed strawberries would be more meaningful for taking bath....
So E can be ruled out when you have other options as given in this question.

E as it appears is different from others i.e.
milk vs cold milk
straberries vs crushed strawberries
cavier vs black cavier (BTW I thought cavier is always black!)

C.

C is the most precise and still keeps the meaning of the original sentence
