this a total bouncer... :roll: i have no idea what this sentence wants to convey.
Still i will try.
My answer: D
two parts connected by "and" are parallel. Other choices break parallelism. Stolyar do let us know the correct choice and reason for same.

My answer is B.

I too dont understand the meaning of the sentence, but I will go with B because I feel that the "it" and "they" in D and E miss something and "touch it" in A and C seems wrong.

As u can c, I m soooo bad at explaining my answer.

The answer is D. The idea is simple: It is not New-York streets that make the real estimation.

Good one Stolyar

Vicks, I dont see the parallelism issue here...can you explain further please?

This is not as intimidating as it might first appear.

D.
Even if one does not understand the sentence, only D correct conveys the idea that the the streets stretch out to philadelphia until "they" touch it.

"They" correctly refers to the plural "NY city streets" and it clearly refers to a noun philadephia

E.
it touches it in E...is poor construction...which it refers to what .

A & C
until touch it .. is poor usage..and leads us nowhere

B.
Until touching it ...poor usage...

All others do not come close..

Thanks

i worked out somewhat like this:
though stretching out toward Philadelphia until they touch it, and northward until they touch New Haven, Hartford, Springfield, Worcester, and Boston
I thought that part of sentences connected by and should be parallel in construction. plus i also thought that "they" shoould be used to refer to NYC streets.
guess first part of reasoning is not really correct.

Sure , they should be parallel...but here all of them exhibit "similar" constructs

parallelism is not tested here
