"Legacy" requires a noun after verb "is" to make sense --> C,D,E out of the list
A is wrong, so B is the choice

Re: Parallelism [#permalink] New post 18 Dec 2010, 05:17
can the structure "to realize that X" be justified here.

Either I have realized "X" in which case I will go for "realization" or "realized" ,
or I don't know what "X" is so I can't really comment whether I have to realize "X" or something else.

Can sm1 throw some light on it . Can all the "to realize" options be discarded on the above ground.

I chose C, because "his or her" is better than "their"

Please provide explanation.

One legacy of Madison Avenue’s recent campaign to appeal to people fifty years old and over is the realization that as a person ages, their[/u] concerns change as well.

D) The usage of when is not advisable...prefer to use as. Anyways B is better so discard it.
E)WRONG.

SO Answer is B

B-->'legacy' is parallel to 'the realization'
E-->'legacy' is NOT parallel to 'realizing'

+1 B

"as" = during; while. We need that concept in this question.
Between B and E, an action noun is better than a gerund.
