The hognose snake puts on an impressive bluff, hissing and rearing back, broadens the flesh behind its head the way a cobra does, feigning repeated strikes, but having no dangerous fangs and no venom, eventually, if its pursuer is not cowered by the performance, will fall over and play dead.

Needs to be parrallel eliminate A, B and D

Leaves C, E. Don't really like either of them. But I would have to go with C.

E, Creates a list including "hissing...broadening...feignings....will fall over and play dead," which would not be parralell. So the list needs to stop after "feining," you can do that by placing an "and" between "does....feigning". Then treating the final clause as a stand along descriptor of the snake.

I will go with "B"
I feel the question is based on the concept of list "broadens" is parrallel with "puts"
and then between "A" and "B" i selected "B" because "having" in "A" is wrong..

Read the explanations. It's pretty clear that the answer is C (I went with B as well).

From the grammar standpoint, I think all are incorrect but the best of the rot is C.

I saw this in GMATPrep and OA is indeed C.

broadening and feigning are ||el to hissing. Also the clause with but follows its own ||elism
has no dangerous fangs and no venom both are nouns.
