Summarize is parallel to constructs

Here it is comparison between what Degler does - merely summarize/ more than summarizing, /and summarizing of one hand and constructs (present tense) on the other hand.

(A) Degler does more than merely summarizing…….summarizing and constructs do not go //

(B) Degler’s study is more than a mere summarizing of ---- summarizing of and constructs do not go well; one is a gerund and the other is a verb

(C) Degler has done more than a mere summarizing of ----- same as B

(D) Degler’s study has done more than summarize merely- comparing a study with he – a person; unparallel

(E) Degler does more than merely summarize ------- Degler tallies with He, does summarize tallies with constructs --- correct

I will try answer , but hope some experts can answer this question.

X more than Y, is the correct idioms. X and Y need to be parallel to each other. If we use "summarizing", the sentence will be "Does" vs "Summarizing", this relationship is not parallel, since Summarizing is not a verb in this context.

"Does" vs " summarize" is parallel; Hence, the sentence is correct!

The 2 clauses are separated by semicolon ";", should they are paralleled? I dont think GMAT required parallelism in 2 independent clauses? Thanks

not parrallel in comparison structure: verb (degler does) with V_ing (summarizing) which could mistakenly assumpt play as noun

(B) Degler’s study is more than a mere summarizing of
not coherence with overal structure: degler does ... ; he constructs ...
incorrect compare what Degler does with a noun "summarizing"

(C) Degler has done more than a mere summarizing of
same reason in choice B

(D) Degler’s study has done more than summarize merely
incorrect for the same reason in choice B

(E) Degler does more than merely summarize
