Hi JJ,

This is a list so we should look for parallelism. The portion that we cannot change has the structure noun is adjective

We live in a world in which crime is rampant, children are recalcitrant, change is the only constant, and uncertainty prevails.

(A) children are recalcitrant, change is the only constant, and uncertainty prevails.
not parallel
(B) children are recalcitrant, change is the only constant, and uncertainty is prevalent.
This is correct
(C) in which children are recalcitrant, in which change is the only constant, and in which uncertainty is prevalent.
This is also correct
(D) where children are recalcitrant, where change is the only constant and where uncertainty is prevalent.
Where should be used to describe a physical place and not an idea
(E) where children are recalcitrant, change is the only constant, and uncertainty is prevalent
Where should be used to describe a physical place and not an idea and this is not parallel

There are two correct answers here. I guess that B is correct because it is more concise but I doubt that you would actually have a choice between these types of correct answers on the real GMAT. Happy studies!

HG.

C is Incorrect
Even i think B should be the right choice as it is a parallel structure.

Cheers~

To be honest, I'm not sure. I got this question from a study guide that was posted on this forum, and I didn't understand why C is the OA either..

Hi Umesh,

(B) is the better of the two correct choices, (B) and (C). Both choices are correct and (B) is better because it is more concise. You can change the OA to (B).

After reading this, it makes sense for C to be the correct choice:

Please underline the portion that needs to be corrected for future visitors. I was confused for a bit there because I didn't know what exactly was the underlined portion.
