Thanks for the reply Rupstar,

The OA is E,

For me also E seems to be the best but,
propose.....suggest.....are calling don't seem to be parallel. I searched previous posts about this question and found one posted a month ago I couldn't find the answer for my question.

qhoc0010 thanks for the links,

I think this question shows us that we shouldn't search for a perfect answer. E seems to be the best but I still think that E isn't parallel.

Parallelism tested here.

other propse ---- others suggest ---- others call

(A)'s use of by suggesting kills the parallel structure needed. (B) does the same. So (A) and (B) are out. We're left with (C), (D) and (E).
We can take (D), (E) out. "by calling'' commits a parallel error as well.

C it is.

Ah... got this wrong as well. I looked at the links provided and I'll copy Anandnk's reasoning over to this thread for the benefit of those who don't want to open too many windows on their computer. Here is why (E) is right.

---------------------- by anandnk in a previous thread-------------------------
While +
some + propose + noun/noun phrase,
+
others + suggest + noun/noun phrase

This is the parallelism.

one cannot suggest reduction of something
but
one can suggest reducing something

so only (E) makes sense out of C,D and E
