A. changing the measured strain across a fault zone, and varying
B. changing measurements of the strain across a fault zone, and varying
C. changing the strain as measured across a fault zone, and variations of
D. changes in the measured strain across a fault zone, and variations in
E. changes in measurements of the strain across a fault zone, and variations among

I know this is from OG11. I have not done it yet. Why is the OA D?
i thuoght the second item in a parallel structure determines the rest after it.

D is my pick. Reason: parallelism.
D provides a clear and parallel construction.

We don't have to go that far for parallelism in this question...

A. ...varying the electrical.....
No clear reference here
B Same as A
C ..variations of....

E. ..variations among...
Not idiomatic

i only post during my down time at work, and at home.

i guess this is a good thing because fatigue will set in by the time i hit the verbal section when i am taking the GMAT. catch all mistakes now and be aware of them later.
