Since digital recording offers essentially perfect reproduction – on compact discs, digital audiotapes, or digital videodiscs – audiophiles can accumulate music, transferring them from one format to another, copying it, and digitally altering it with little effort and not damaging the sound quality. (GMAT Prep)
1. music, transferring them from one format to another, copying it, and digitally altering it with little effort and not damaging-pronoun ambiguity “them”
2. music, transferring it from one format to another, copying it, and digitally altering it with little effort and no damage to -We can alter music after coping of music, the action copying should be completed a completed action
3. music, transfer it from one format to another, copy it, and digitally alter it with little effort and no damage to - correct

4. music and transfer it from one format to another, copy it, and then digitally altering it with little effort and not damaging- “then digitally altering” is awkward
5. music and transfer it from one format to another, copying it, and digitally alter it with little effort and no damage to-We can alter music after coping of music, the action copying should be a completed action

A) music, transferring them from one format to another, copying it, and digitally altering it with little effort and not damaging
pronouns "them" does not agree with noun "music", lack of parallelism between "transferring them, copying it" "not damaging" is ankward

B) music, transferring it from one format to another, copying it, and digitally altering it with little effort and no damage to
Not correct usage of ing-form inside the parallelism: there is an above parallel structure in the sentence between "accumulate music" and all the rest, which is not conveyed by the sentence in B. It seems that transferring is a way of accumulate music and the tense between accumulate and transferring, copying etc does not agree.

C) music, transfer it from one format to another, copy it, and digitally alter it with little effort and no damage to
Correct "above" parallel structure between accumulate and all the other verbs (transfer, copy, alter)

D) music and transfer it from one format to another, copy it, and then digitally altering it with little effort and not damaging
lack in parallelism between verbs "copy", "transfer" and "altering"

E) music and transfer it from one format to another, copying it, and digitally alter it with little effort and no damage to
problems in paralellism which is shifting between "transfer" present tense , "copying" ing-form, "alter", present tense


Therefore Correct answer is C.
Kudos if you find this post helpful. I do really need them!!!!

C because here all things are parallel in meaning and structure.

Not b, because accumulating music does not cause its transferring, copying or altering. If it were the case that the first one was leading to other things, b would have been correct.

I narrowed down to B & C. Good reasons given for eliminating B. Also what do you mean SVA issue?

A has SVA issue.
B implies that "transferring music from one format to another" is an effect of "accumulation of music", an unneeded change of meaning.
C items are parallel.
D and E both have parallelism issue.


Can you please enlighten me about the SVA issue!

It should be singular , so them is not correct.
