GT, ans B leaves the last TO, so there's a parallelism problem in B, no?.

I say C.

All one has to do is A and then B, and C

Good parallelism question.

there is no "to" following 'and' in B.

C should be correct. It is parallel.

The "only" thing is listing 3 things, that's why

Earlier i also went for B, but then after going thru others' explanations, i also prefer C.
B woud have been fine if it had "to" in the end.

I think the answer is B for the reason GMATTIGER mentioned above. What's the OA?

Please check whether last "to" is correctly underlined.

"all one has to do is...." needs to follow the infinitive object. Hence, to is required. Hence, if last "to" is not underlined, obvious answers are B and E. However, passive voice in E makes the option awkward. Hence, B becomes the choice.

However, if the last "to" is underlined then all the answer choices are wrong.

I think it is B.

based on one example from the MGMAT SC book, last 'to' is assumed/optional.

Here is the example from the book...

Verb Infinitives: I decided 'to swim' across the river rathar than 'sail' around
the world.(the second 'to' is optional).


I am not sure about the 'to' is optional only when there are two infinite verbs ...

but the question is having multiple 'to's .

Can some one put more light on this one?

This is correctly underlined.

OA is C

Good one. Can someone explain why infinitive is not required after "is". Is thie because everything after "is" is an object phrase?

Good catch here. Glad to have realized this usage now. I had also selected C because of to.
One possible explanation for not needing to is:
all one has to is leave them

if we want to rephrase,
one has to x only leave them

So the to is already present in has to. Hence, one more to is not reqd.
