there is a pattern which is almost always wrong on GMAT
preposition+ NOUN+ participle
(i've leraned from others)

with above rule- you eliminate C and E
A- is ambiguos- is clustered houses parallel with child-car facilities OR with urban apartment houses?

so we remain with Band D
the only difference is 'to include' , which GMAT consider unidiomatic
that leaves us with D

I agree that D is the best choice here. But....
Shouldn't with communal eating and social facilities ideally be replaced by that included communal eating and social facilities for parallelism sake???

This question was explained either in Sahils grammar notes or Spidey's notes

I have to say that I picked A because none of other choices are parallel. Did Sahil's notes explain this? I couldn't find the answer why A is wrong. Could someone post the explanation?
