Only B keeps the correct parallelism. "taking advantage..." modifies "to sell shellfish year-round"

Pretty close between B & C. I'll go for B though.

Thanks [#permalink] New post 28 Mar 2007, 14:43
Thanks Guys. The official answer is B. I got confused with 'taking advantage' and thought that it should be parallel as well and choose wrong choice. Wudy description helps.

X,Y and Z.

Z should follow the same structure as Y does. This means Y and Z should be parallel.

Selling potatoes, to buy apples and to donate oranges .........is a parallel structure.
But Selling potatoes, buying apples and to donate oranges .....is not parallel.
