p.143, q.12

Popular child psychologists have advocated that parents discipline male children similarly to the fashion in which they discipline daughters.

(A) similarly to the fashion in which they discipline daughters
(B) in the same manner that they would use with
(C) like they would handle
(D) as they discipline
(E) as they would

The answer is E. However, I choose D and the author reasons "D changes the sentence's meaning. Why?
By the way, isn't it wrong to omit "discipline" after "would" in D?


p.134, q13

Unable to walk without assistance, radio provided Franklin Roosevelt with a medium for conveying a message of vigor and confidence that would have been belied by the visual image presented on television.

(A) radio provided Franklin Roosevelt with a medium for conveying
(B) Franklin Roosevelt conveyed in radio
(C) Franklin Roosevelt used radio to convey
(D) radio allowed Franklin Roosevelt to convey
(E) through radio it was possible

The answer is C. I pick B, and the author says, "In B, it's wrong and awkward to say that Roosevelt 'conveyed in radio a message'." I ain't native speaker... Can someone explain why it is awkward?

Thanks!

1. Choice D changes the meaning of the sentence to say that parents should discipline male children while they are disciplining female children.

2. Choice C sounds like it is more parallel. Unable "to walk"... used radio "to convey".

For Q2,
What about "conveyed in radio... presented on television" in B?
I think it sounds more parallel than C.

And for Q1,
Sorry I wrongly underlined some part of the sentence,
so I repost Q1 as follows:


Popular child psychologists have advocated that parents discipline male children similarly to the fashion in which they discipline daughters.

(A) similarly to the fashion in which they discipline
(B) in the same manner that they would use with
(C) like they would handle
(D) as they discipline
(E) as they would

Thanks :)
