A)the skills that are listed on a person’s resume; and the school a person attended and in what major, as well as that school’s ranking in U.S. News and World Report.
what should be present to make the structure of the sentence parallel
B)the skills that are listed on a person’s resume; the school a person attended; and the major of that person, as well as that school’s ranking in U.S. News and World Report.
what should be present to make the structure of the sentence parallel
C)what skills are listed on a person’s resume; what school a person attended; and what major, as well as that school’s ranking in U.S. News and World Report.
"and what major" should not be after the semicolon as it is not a trait itself, but a continuation of the trait "what school ..."
D)what skills are listed on a person’s resume; and what school a person attended, as well as the major and ranking of that school in U.S. News and World Report.
as well as the major and ranking of the school is wrong. The major has to be used for the person not the school
E)what skills are listed on a person’s resume; and what school a person attended and in what major, as well as the ranking of that school in U.S. News and World Report.
Correct

IMO, E is correct.

A)the skills that are listed on a person’s resume; and the school a person attended and in what major, as well as that school’s ranking in U.S. News and World Report.
Wrong. Not parallel.

B)the skills that are listed on a person’s resume; the school a person attended; and the major of that person, as well as that school’s ranking in U.S. News and World Report.
Wrong. Not parallel.

C)what skills are listed on a person’s resume; what school a person attended; and what major, as well as that school’s ranking in U.S. News and World Report.
Wrong. Not parallel because the last part "and what major........" is a noun phrase, not a clause.

D)what skills are listed on a person’s resume; and what school a person attended, as well as the major and ranking of that school in U.S. News and World Report.
Wrong.
- The usage of "as well as": the clause before "as well as" is not parallel with the noun phrase after "as well as". The two portions should be parallel, e.g. noun as well as noun, clause as well as clause
- Change meaning: the intended meaning is the major that a person attend, not the major of the school. But D changes the meaning to "the major of the school".
- "The ranking" is more clear than "ranking"

E)what skills are listed on a person’s resume; and what school a person attended and in what major, as well as the ranking of that school in U.S. News and World Report.
Correct. Good parallel structure.

IMO, E is correct, not C.

A)the skills that are listed on a person’s resume; and the school a person attended and in what major, as well as that school’s ranking in U.S. News and World Report.
Wrong. Not parallel.

Wrong. Not parallel.

C)what skills are listed on a person’s resume; what school a person attended; and what major, as well as that school’s ranking in U.S. News and World Report.
Wrong. Not parallel structure because the last part "and what major........" is a noun phrase, not a clause. In addition, "the major" should be the one that a person attended, not the major of the school.

D)what skills are listed on a person’s resume; and what school a person attended, as well as the major and ranking of that school in U.S. News and World Report.
