A: Degler does more than merely summarizing
(C) Degler has done more than a mere summarizing of
(E) Degler does more than merely summarize

Let us look at the comparison in these choices now.
A: Degler - does is a verb while more than merely summa rizing is a gerund – not parallel
C: Degler---- has done is a verb - and - more than a mere summarizing of – a gerund –not parallel
E: Degler does – a verb and more than merely summarize- another verb – parallel comparison
That is why E wins over A and C

What is the source of this question?

I will go with A.

Semicolon separates two clauses, so both the clauses should be logically complete. We are talking about Degler and not his study.
So options B and D are out.

Second clause is in simple present. So does the first clause should be. So C is out.

Among A and E I think A is correct one. "merely summarize research" in E seems awkward to me.

I'm with piyatiwari. I think "summarize" in E is used as a verb, which is incorrect. "summarizing" in A is a gerund so I'm leaning on A. And since the phrases are separated by semi-colon, I don't think they have to be parallel.

Though I got this question wrong, I learned new thing.

(A) Degler does more than merely summarizing >> It would have been correct if we compared gerund 'summarizing' with another gerund. For example, Degler does editing more than merely summarizing. In this case 'editing' and 'summarizing' are parallel.

(E) Degler does more than merely summarize >> Though it sounds awkward, grammatically it is correct. here 'does' and 'summarize' are being compared and are parallel.

(A) Degler does more than merely summarizing - merely summarizing is Incorrect.
(B) Degler’s study is more than a mere summarizing of - Degler's study does not make sense as "he constructs" is mentioned afterwards.
(C) Degler has done more than a mere summarizing of - mere summarizing of is incorrect.
(D) Degler’s study has done more than summarize merely - Same mistake as B
(E) Degler does more than merely summarize
