IMO A

black hole lies at the centre of the milky way and at the centre of other other galaxies.
Only A and E remains.

E applies restrictive clause to black hole rather than theory.

think it is A.

How is A parallel?

Theory that X and theory of Y?? Is it parallel?

Thats why I picked E

I think they meant "a theory supports a black hole lies in the center of x and of y". Thus A

its A

it goes by this...we say theory of relativity. In this case, if we choose answer choices that use of instead of that, we seem to be talking more about theories of land mammals; we are not identifying the action of those land mammals. In other words, with the ‘that’, we are leaving out what it is that the theory purports the mammals did.

Ya, this is a great question. Fell for B for misreading what is theory supporting.

New learning for me.

Awesome. I like the posting.

Whenever you see "theory" Unless its a very known theory like "theory of relativity" always go for theory that. Delete "theory of" Now we are left with A and B. B is tempting but "of" modifies theory. so I go with A.

I was reading P sahil's notes from gmatclub. notes say differently -

 6) Parallelism: Its very important to maintain parallelism. E.g. I like to dance, to runand to watch TV. This is the correct sentence. However, a sentence like ‘I like todance, to run and watch TV’ is wrong because it does not maintain parallelism.• Infinitive parallelism: to salvage…to processOnly way for farmers to salvage fruit is to process it• That parallelism: Many agree that there is waste…and that government isrubbish

So I don't know if this SC is a gmat SC.

I dont see what are you trying to say with the notes you are reviewing.
