My answer is B.

Reasons:
D and E are incorrect because after a semicolon(;),a new sentence needs to begin. 'Still expecting' is not the correct start to the sentence.

Among A,B and C
I thought that for A and C, parents have/had 'lived' should be there.
B looked best to me.

When comapring action as here, the second verb 'did' make the comparison clear.

Why not A? did assume past tense but parents might be alive.

Same question as kedar... why not A?

Do we have to say: have lived... isnt the 'lived' implied after have?

OA is B

My ans is D.

The first part of the scentence is talking about inflation. but the second part starts with "they" -- they and inflation do not relate.

Whats the OA?.

B.
parent's time is clearly for refernce to the past and has nothing to do with them being alive or not.
