Parallelism: called FOR urban apatment ... || and FOR clustered suburban hoses

Eliminate A and B for using the stupid comma here

C: changes the meaning because the reason for calling for these houses is not to include the communal eating and social facitilies. This question requires understanding the meaning of the sentence. Also, "with child-care facilities included" presents unneccessary passive voice.

E: changes the meaning again + passive voice at the end

(A) including child-care facilities and clustered suburban houses including communal eating and social facilities
It gives the impression that child care facilities are type of urban apts

(B) that included child-care facilities, and for clustered suburban houses to include communal eating and social facilities
Not parallel –that included….to include

(C) with child-care facilities included and for clustered suburban houses to include communal eating and social facilities
preposition + noun + participle is wrong is GMAT land….with + child care facilities +included


(D) that included child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities
correct


(E) to include child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities included
preposition + noun + participle is wrong is GMAT land….with + communal eating and social facilities +included
