My choice (A), it maintains the required parallel structure of the sentence.

I believe the answer is D. The feminist called for urban apartment houses [what kind of houses?] that included said facilities … and for suburban houses [what kind of houses?] with another set of facilities.

B it is
A) you usually call for something to happen. Sentence is incomplete as is
C) this very convoluted phrase does not make sense to me
D) again, incomplete sentence. You call for something to happen
E) this totally changes the meaning of original sentence

Basically, what Charlotte Gilman wants is: urban apartment houses [that included X], and clustered suburban houses to include Y and Z.

I will go with D
called for [X] .... and for [Y] ..... seems to be correct. -> A is out!
use of "to include" doesnt seem gramatically correct (atlease to my ear :wink: )

Hence I go for D

Paul, as far as I know you call for a particular thing as in "The occasion calls for a celebration with fireworks."

Frankly speaking, "to call for sth to happen" sounds awkward and, well, incorrect. Can you confirm that such usage is accepted?

Would like to correct my self, (How the hell I can say that (A) is right).

(D) should be the answer.

ob, there are 2 different definitions of "call for"
1) to require as necessary or appropriate. ie: the position calls for proper finance skills/The occasion calls for a celebration with fireworks
2) a request or demand. ie: Marc called for the proper song [to be sung]

I may be wrong here but when the second definition is called for, I believe you need "to....". My imagination may be playing tricks on me and that "to..." may be unappropriate after all... D does sound good otherwise.

Even though I chose D from the beginning, now I understand why I did it. I haven't memorized the rule yet, but in a recent post by Bhai where
"Detroit developers hoped that a renewal project will establish a population.... (a) to live and work downtow
(b) that will live as well as work downtown

I chose (a) and it was wrong and ob explained why.
I believe that this is the same kind of sentence.

[She] called for apartment buildings
(a) to have blah-blah
(b) that have blah-blah

Once again, the correct choice starts with "that"[/b]

Paul, thanks for clarifying your stance on the issue. I still believe that the infinitive structure is inappropriate since it changes the quality and feel of the phrase... :oops: I however may be off-target here.

B) is wrong because "clustered suburban houses" cannot include something...

C) is wrong for the same reason as above
