Mary Leak's contribution... in addition to her work (parallel -- both are possesive nouns)

A,B,C are out.

between D and E

D is || . her discovery of X .... her documentation of .. are parallel in structure.

Answer is B.

both sides of 'and' should be parallel. contributed with discovery & contributed by documenting.
D & E are rejected because the phrase preceding Mary modifies Mary Leaky & not her contributions.

What is "In addition to her work on the Miocene hominid fossil record"? Not ML, but her contributions. A,B & C out. D is parallel and E is NOT. D is correct
