Who can explain the OA, i.e. how "for having" can be parallel with "of stashing"?

Thanks beforehand.

The judge told the jury that he had excused a juror for having....and....of stashing

Excused for is the correct idiom I guess, and having and stashing for ||ism?

The judge told the jury that he had excused a juror for having purposely provided murder photos to the media and then stashed the money received to hide evidence supporting his claim of innocence.

The question is to test verb tense and parallellism

The judge told the jury that he had excused a juror
1.for having purposely provided murder photos to the media
and then
2. stashed the money received to hide evidence supporting his claim of innocence.

clearly not parallel.

As the first list starts with verbing modifier, the second as well should start with verding

So down with options D & E.

(E) of stashing such money as he received to hide evidence that would be supportive of
as he received in past tense. Should be in past perfect.
also supportive of his claim of innosence - unidiomatic.

So ans is D.

Hope it helps.
Kudos pls if it helps

(A) stashed the money received to hide evidence supporting

(C) stashed the money he had received to hide evidence that would support
(D) of stashing the money he had received to hide evidence that would support
(E) of stashing such money as he received to hide evidence that would be supportive of

D is Correct

It is important to know the structure of the sentence.

Main Clause :- (Subject)The judge (Main Verb)told (Direct Object)the jury that..........
Subordinate Clause :- (Subject)he (Verb)had excused (Object)a juror (Compound Predicate)for having purposely provided murder photos to the media and then stashed the money received to hide evidence supporting his claim of innocence.

The compound predicate should contains two predicates (Two reasons for which Juror had been excused), that are parallel to each other.

Predicate 1 :- for having purposely provided murder photos to the media (Adjectival Clause - Modifying the object - Juror)
Predicate 2 :-
then stashed the money received to hide evidence supporting his claim of innocence. :- The verb stashed makes this part an independent clause referring to The Judge and thus is not parallel to Predicate 1. So A is out.

B) INCORRECT - for the same reason cited in Choice A

C) INCORRECT - for the same reason cited in Choice A

D) CORRECT - This choice converts the independent clause in Adjectival Phrase which is parallel to first predicate.

E) INCORRECT - Wordy structures :- such money as, that would be supportive of....

Hope that helps!

Kindly explain the use of "had received" in the OA. What is the past tense with respect to which "had received money" is furthur past?It must be that the juror first showed the photo & then he got the money?

What am I missing??

Sorry, folks, but this sentence makes absolutely no sense. You may accuse someone of stashing, but you don't excuse them of stashing. Also, what does "hide evidence supporting his claim of innocence" mean? That he would prefer to be found guilty? Wouldn't he instead hide evidence contradicting his claim of innocence????

Who came up with this sentence anyway--Paris Hilton???? No, couldn't be--in that case, it would contain at least 4 or 5 "like"s.

Sorry, but this still does not make sense to me.

We obviously deal with a parallel structure here, but "excuse so. of sth." is unidiomatic IMO.

Can someone comment on this?
