I would go with (C). I forgot the name of "the matching form of verb in the first part of sentense with the second part" practice that means "suggest" should be used instead of "suggesting". Does it hold good for a three or multi part sentense too? (In which case "call" should be the form of the verb instead of "calling").

Prefer E.

(A) suggesting reducing. doesnot sound good to my ear.
(B) by suggesting and still others call.... ot parallel.
(C) reduction .....for decreasing.... not approperiate idiom.
(D) suggest ....... and calling. not parallel.
(E) others suggest reducing ......., and still others are calling..... parallel.

I still stand by my explanation (tho I still dont know the name of what-I-mentioned).

So an OA would be much appreciated. Thanks.

look at this questio from PR

Some State Department officials hope to end the border skirmish by bargaining with the new dictator, others (by proposing imposing stiff economic sanctions on the country's exports, and still others by demanding) that NATO launch a full-scale invasion.

B) by proposing the imposition of stiff economic sanctions on the country's exports, and still others demand

C) propose imposing stiff economic sanctions on the country's exports, and still others are demanding

D) are proposing the stiff imposition of economic sanctions on the country's exports, and still others are demanding

E) propose the stiff imposition of economic sanctions on the country's exports, and still others demand

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



PR explanation:

The non-underlined portion establishes the form that the rest of the sentence must take: (1) the sentence is in the present tense (officials hope to end), and (2) by bargaining indicates that we're going to use "-ing" words. The key is recognizing that propose needs to agree with "hope", not bargaining. "E" is parallel & the three verbs--hope, propose, & demand--are all in the same form.



doesnt both the OA contradict each other.

i mean how can C be wrong, its very similar to E of the(computer program pirating)

OA is "E". This is indeed an OG question and I don't understand how "E" can be claimed as ||....

"E"'s structure is :

some propose.....others suggest.....still others are calling

propose....suggest are ||...but how can "are calling" be || to the rest.....shudn't it be .....still others call for ...

"C" is much better option than "E" I believe....what u guys think ?

Plz explain.

UP !...can anyone explain my query above

Banerjee, frankly why i didnot like C is because of the reduction of software prices for decreasing. i liked reducing software prices to decrease more idiomatic than the above expression of B.
