Expert's post
E is the correct answer choice since all parts in the list are nouns and thus have a parallel structure.

must be E..,

parallelism with in built idiom..., from X to Y,
From X to Y, to Z.. is incorrect

Hi can someone explain why D is correct.
Although it is right to use From....to construction. but is it okay to have more than one "to".

Doesn't E appear to be the correct answer? How can D be correct? There is no parallelism in D.

Can someone post the OE?

My two cents.

'E' is wrong because of the comma "+ and" construction

Usage of ", + and"

He likes A, B, and C. --> A, B, C should be parallel.
He likes A, and he wants B. --> A and B should be independent clauses.

For these reasons, E is wrong...

The benefits of having many trees on one's property ranges from insulation and energy conservation in summer and winter, to cleaner air, and increases in property value.

The construction is prep. phrase + prep. phrase + noun phrase ??

Re: The benefits of having many trees on one's property ranges [#permalink] New post 26 Dec 2013, 10:25
I believe the answer is D because the format of the sentence is "The benefits range from ... x, to y, to z."

I think E would have been a more viable choice if the comma was not there. If the comma wasn't there, I would have thought the structure to be "The benefits range from....x and y, to a and b". However, because the comma is there, it doesn't sound right (sorry, for lack of a better reason) to say "The benefits range from x, to y, and z". The "...and z" makes it seem not as parallel.

Anyone else have thoughts on D?

Typical sentence structure: ... from A, B, and C, to D, E, and F.

Would it make sense to say: from A, from, B, and from C, to D, to E, and to F?
Well, not at all in my opinion.

I believe there is a mistake in the answer to this question.
