OA is C. I searched in other forums for the explaination.
C is correct because it mantains correct parallel structure and there are two phrases (and not 3) that shud be considered for parallelism in C.

It's C. It is concise and parallel.

A,B are not parallel. D,E are out because they use 'the only thing' for three separate actions.

C: X and Y
.. leave them and corral them,
AND
.. drive them to market ..
