Here the two main verbs are HELP and DEVELOP. Parallelism should be maintained there only.

Consider the similar line "To make you go there".Here the main verb is MAKE.It doesn't make sense to use parallelism in GO.

i pick A. D and E are out for parallelism. C is out because LIKE never used in clause. in B, letting does not modify programs correctly. correct me if i am wrong

Option B is wrong as it is using 'develop' instead of 'To develop' which is parallel to 'to help'..
is this reasoning correct

A. plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses in the same way that flight simulators do
B. plan difficult operations and develop programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as with flight simulators
C. to plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators
D. plan difficult operations and in developing programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as flight simulators
E. to plan difficult operations and developing programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators do


Meaning :- Researchers are using computer images for 2 things
a. to help surgeons
b. to develop programs
Further these programs will work for doctors in the same way the flight simulators work for pilots.

Error Analysis :- No Error

POE :-
Option A :- Correct
Option B :- Changes the meaning of the sentence by stating that Surgeons plan difficult operations and develop programs for doctors. Also the comparison is incorrect
Option C :- The list is ambiguous, there can be 2 possible parallel lists, one :- the actual correct list, other :- surgeons to plan and to develop (same as option B). Also Like is used to compare nouns and for comparing clauses need an 'as', also need a verb after flight simulators
Option D :- The list plan and in developing is not parallel, also need a verb after flight simulators to have proper comparison
Option E :- Changes the intended meaning, this option states that Researchers are using images to do something and Researchers are developing programs. whereas the original option states that researchers are using images to do something and to develop something. Need 'as' for comparison not 'like'

IMO :- A

A. plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses in the same way that flight simulators do OK
B. plan difficult operations and develop programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as with flight simulators Researchers are using computer images to develop programs, not the surgeons;"as with flight simulators do" is not grammatically correct.
C. to plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators "to help surgeons to plan operations" <> to help surgeons plan.
D. plan difficult operations and in developing programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as flight simulators "in developing" is not parallel with "to help"
E. to plan difficult operations and developing programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators do "developing" is parallel with "to help"; "like" cannot contain a verb

Splits:
to develop vs. develop vs. developing - sentence must be parallel logically and structurally, so infinitive is needed.
like...do vs. like vs. in the same way that - a verb is used or not used depending on the comparative clause indicator.
