D would have been better I think if it had a 'which' instead of 'that'.
Any suggestions?

I guess it's this way: which... have, that... include, with
which include/with... included causes redundancy.

D

A is out - non parallel........"call for X..........and for Y"

I've read that "to inlcude" is non-idiomatic in GMAT, but I'm not sure how far that's true.

But in this SC "to include" changes the meaning of the sentence and leads to wrong answers.

Perkins called for apartments that already had the specified facilities and did not ask for facilities to get included.

So all the answers with "to include" are out. BCE are out.

D is best.

What is wrong with B

He called for X and for Y to include communal eating and social facilities.

What am I missing here?

I'm just not seeing it guys. The parallelism + Meaning is tested here but let's see each answer choice

The question stem says called for urban apartment houses... now let's analyze each answer choice

(A) including CC F and CSH including CE and SF, I think this is not the intended meaning, we should try something else.
(B) that included....and for CSH to include. These two are definetely not parallel OUT
(C) with CCF included and for CCSB to include. Not parallel again. OUT
(D) that included CCF and for CCSB with communical. This should be the correct one, but I don't see the //ism here...
(D) to include CCF and for CSH with CCE . Again not parallel. OUT

Anyone, want to try to explain why D is parallel or in any case why is it correct?

Thanks, will throw some Kudos out there.

The main parallelism occurs here: What did CPG call for? She called FOR urban apartment houses and FOR clustered suburban houses. The second FOR is important, otherwise the sentence can mean that she called for urban apartment houses that included both child care facilities and clustered suburban houses.
D maintains this parallelism.

"That included CCF" is an adjective phrase describing the Urban apartment houses. Likewise, "with communal eating and social facilities" is another phrase that describes the second parallel component, CSH. The phrase could have been, "that included communal eating and social facilities", but D still works. Note that the other options are clearly wrong, and we are looking for the best possible answer.
