I think that B and D are both logically sound. The only reason why D is more preferable than B is because D is more concise. "... terrorist activity that is persistent" is more lengthy than "...persistent terrorist activity."

Remember: A GMAT question must be correct on the grounds of grammar, meaning, and concision.

(A) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that is persitstent
(B) and the chilling effect of terrorist activity that is persistent
(C) but persistent terrorist activity has had a chilling effect too
(D) and the chilling effects of persistent terrorist activity
(E) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that persists

can any 1 pls explain this



''As well As" can not be used to compare three things, so A & E are out.
C has incorrect use of tense(Had), also irrelevant option.
B is just not parallel with other two events of sentence.

So D is the best choice.

(B) and the chilling effect of terrorist activity that is persistent
(C) but persistent terrorist activity has had a chilling effect too
(D) and the chilling effects of persistent terrorist activity
(E) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that persists

EXPL: two errors in the original sentence that is parallelism and the way it is intoduced. (AS well is awkward)

A & E are out for using AS WELL
C uses BUT implying a contrast.. not the intended meaning.
Left with B and D
notice the elements of parllelism
article+noun+of+adjective+noun
1.a result of sluggish economy
2.a stretch of bad weather
3.the chilling effects of persistent terrorist activity

D is definetly the right answer

obviously down to B & D

B is clearly wrong however because B presents an illogical meaning:

B seems to imply that, in addition to the economy and bad weather, the other problem is ONLY terrorist activity that IS persistent --- illogically implying that terrorist activity that ISN'T persistent is not part of the problem
