D.

Either is required before "I would" and parallel.

I disagree. Option D says "either I....or....go."-----> one is a suject pronoun and the other is a verb

I choose option A as my answer. Option A says "either take....or.....go"--->both are verbs

I choose A as well

Either take ... or ... go is parallel

you have a point. But I am thinking that B would be correct if the structure is this way 'either would X or would Y' ..

so missing 'would' after 'or' makes B wrong? that is my logic .. :-D

because the construction here is:

either would....or go

in order to apply "would" to all the following verbs, you have to place the "would" before "either." So in option A, it says:

would take...or....would go

whenever you need to repeat a certain word, you will have achieved that when you place that word right before "either."

and remember, the construction should be: it's either A or B
