a) of the man’s short temper, told she should not anger him, and was
b) of the man’s short temper, told she should not anger him, and
Use Advised of.....told. It should have been ', and that she should not'

d) that the man had a short temper, should not anger him, and was
Bolded portion is incorrect. It should be 'that she should not'

We are left with C & E.
c) of the man’s short temper, and that she should not anger him and
e) that the man had a short temper, that she should not anger him, and was

So I go with C.

I would have to say B. The question is asking for the correct parallel structure. First of all I believe advise of and advise that are both acceptable idioms so you can't narrow it down there.

B seems to have the best structure. "...she was advised, ... (was) told, ... and (was) given"

A wouldn't be right because you either need to maintain a parallel word throughout the structure or use it only on the first instance, and make it implied for the rest of the parallel phrases. You can't use "was" in the first phrase, skip the second, and then use it again in the third phrase.

What is the OA?
