D..
do not contain "x y z " or "anything".

Could anyone explain as to why an "OR" has to be used before "anything" in this sentence.

I would go with D too.

The construction of the sentence is - do not contain x,y, or z.
Now x is 'color or flavor additives', y is 'chemical preservatives' and z is 'anything that has been synthesized'.

Hope I did not confuse you further. :!:

the oa is D.

I got this correct however, i was wondering why B was wrong?

The sentece does need "or" but doesnt b preserve the parallelism?

for example waht if the sentence read
