IMO...(B)..

C is not a parallel structure.
C -- is leave them alone while they feed themselves and then corral them and

C sounds better to me than A.

(A) all one has to do with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves, corral them, and to--- incorrect usage.
(C) all one has to do with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves and then corral them and

D and E are incorrect because they say " the only thing..." and then give two 'things' that need to be done
1) to leave them alone ... and
2) corral them and drive them to the market...
(D) the only thing that has to be done with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves, corral them, and
(E) the only thing that has to be done with cattle is to leave them alone while they feed themselves, to corral them, and

What about B, does it change the meaning by saying " leave them alone to feed..." rather than "leave them alone while they feed..."

One more thing: Is not in A and C wrong to use "leave" without "to"?

(B) all one has to do with cattle is to leave them alone to feed themselves, to corral them, and
(C) all one has to do with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves and then corral them and

The main issue with B is not '...while they feed...", it is the use of '...to corral them, and to...'
".... all one has to do with cattle is to leave them alone to feed themselves, to corral them, and to drive them (now it appears that the cattle would do all these things and not the owner)..."
whereas in C, the sentence has a better flow stating that the cattle needs to be left alone only while they feed themselves.

Does that help..?

Yes, thanks, I got the reasoning, but is it right to use "leave" without "to? :roll:

Yes! I agree, the sentence would sound better if 'to' is used before 'leave' in C.

C is better than A and B.

D and E are out.

May be this can help...

"leave them alone while they feed themselves, corral them"and "drive them to market when the time is ripe"

are parallel.

So you either have a "to" preposition before both of them or none of them... 'C' qualifies this.. C it is

(D) the only thing that has to be done with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves, corral them, and...

Option D says "the only thing to be done ...is", but went on to list three items: leave them, corral them , and drive them
So, (D) is wrong. This is more of semantics (meaning) than syntax or grammar.

Re: cattle raising [#permalink] New post 05 Sep 2010, 11:52
Error of parallelism:
There are 3 actions: leave them, corral them, drive them. These actions need to be parallel.

It is an oversimplified view of cattle raising to say that all one has to do with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves, corral them, and to drive them to market when the time is ripe.
(A) all one has to do with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves, corral them, and to - third action not parallel.
(B) all one has to do with cattle is to leave them alone to feed themselves, to corral them, and - third action not parallel.
(C) all one has to do with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves and then corral them and - parallel with drive them
(D) the only thing that has to be done with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves, corral them, and - Changes meaning, has to be done is passive form. In GMAT active tone is always preferred.
(E) the only thing that has to be done with cattle is to leave them alone while they feed themselves, to corral them, and - Changes meaning, has to be done is passive form. In GMAT active tone is always preferred.
Correct option - C

In C .. "leave them alone while they feed themselves and then corral them" ... shouldn't there be a comma instead of and since there are three activities ...

1. leave them alone while they feed themselves
2. corral them
3. drive them to market

Doesn't C change the meaning?
