B for me. Cuts out the unecessary repitition of "in which" and maintains IIism thru "X is Y"

Parallelism [#permalink] New post 05 Jan 2006, 17:45
I will go with 'B' as parallelism is observed in answer choice 'B'.

I would go for A. In A, "uncertainty prevails" active voice is better than the passive voice in B although the parallellism is seemingly lost. If you notice the first two elements of the enumeration regarding "children" and "change", well those cannot be put in the active voice so they are in the passive voice and create the illusion that the last element, "uncertainty", must be so as well

B

Crime is rampant, children are recalcitrant, change is the only constant, and uncertainity is prevalent.

other choices are not parallel. For D and E, it's flawed because the sentence starts with "in which crime is rampant" so it can't have where

I am going to question the OA..."in which" in front of every element is the only difference between B and C. Hence I think B is more "concise" without the in which.

I have seen this before, 'C' makes it more clear by putting 'in which' before every lle part of the sentence!

So vivek, is there any rule that can be used to say that I need to repeat "in which" or I don't need to repeat?

Subbu, I'm really not aware of this :?

But here, all parallel parts seem to modify 'crime' (closer noun) rather than 'world', so, in order to make it clear in meaning, it makes sense to repeat 'in which' with every parallel part.

So, I guess there is no such rule but it's the matter of making things clearer.

Any comments? :)

Still thinks (A) sounds fine. Repeating "in which" is redundant and overly wordy.
