illegal copying of computer programs [#permalink] New post 25 May 2006, 10:27
Here's today's tough one

While some propose to combat widespread illegal copying of computer programs by attempting to change people's attitudes toward pirating, others by suggesting reducing software prices to decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others by calling for the prosecution of those who copy software illegally.

(A) by suggesting reducing software prices to decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others by calling
(B) by suggesting the reduction of software prices to decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others call
(C) suggest the reduction of software prices for decreasing the incentive for pirating, and still others call
(D) suggest the reduction of software prices to decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others by calling
(E) suggest reducing software prices to decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others are calling


OA later

Only A & B have parallel construction "by attempting .... by suggestng".

^B^ is right

I agree, Ill go with B. "still" breaks the need for parallelism with the third clause I guess.

I believe ... A& B are any way out ... coz .. some propse ..parallels with others suggest ... Though E doesn't strike in the very first go ... but I think.. by POE since C&D have inherent flaws for not paralleling with "attempting" ... we can go for E ...
in E "reducing" parallels with "attempting" ..
Anyone for better explanation???
thnx jeunesis..it's a good question ..

"C"

"Some propose", "others suggest" and "still others call for" are in paralle. Can someone explain why "E" and not "C" is the OA?
