B for me... it is the only choice that is parallel and makes sense

D and E don't make sense because constraction and decoration enshrined "them"... temples???

C is not parallel "energy was expended on creation, constracting and decoration"

A has temples that enshrined "them" and has ||sm problems as well

Must be B.

"they" if referring to artisans then its certainly wrong. Remember "possessive poison" from MGMAT SC.

Use POE

A) No, because the word expanded should be followed by on not for. Also when they constructed etc. goes for artisans but they are considered as passive in the first part of the sentence, so A is out.

B) Right answer

C) No parralelism - on creasion and constructing - wrong.

D)and also constructing and decorating the temples enshrining them - whom? and where is the verb? constructing and decorating is the subject but the verb is missing.

E)the creating of Buddha images Accounted for much of the local artisans’ creative energy (and parralelism) as well as Accounted for construction and decoration of the temples that enshrined them. It looses the initial logical meaning. It can be inferred that the construction of temples helped to create images which is illogical.

E is wrong because "creating" is not parallel with "decoration"

C is wrong because "constructing and decorating" are not parallel

A is wrong because "they" and "them" are unclear references

Between B and D,

I am guessing B, because "them" in D does not have a noun that it is suppose to refer to. "creating images of Buddha" is not a noun, but if it is, the phrase is not plural.
