The OE for C is that it introduces the nonidiomatice "for decreasing", which creates some difficulty in meaning... it was mentioned in the other thread that "suggest for/to" was a problematic idiom... not sure if this helps...

OA is E indeed and question came from OG 10

I did a check on the usage for suggest

[i]sugÂ·gest (sg-jst, s-jst) tr.v. sugÂ·gestÂ·ed, sugÂ·gestÂ·ing, sugÂ·gests [/u]
1. To offer for consideration or action; propose: suggest things for children to do; suggested that we take a walk.

So surprisingly suggest ...for seems to be idiomatice as well. Unless there is anyother supporting reference to disprove..

As everyone, I also went for 'C'...

U2lover, can you please post the OE for this..

Thank you

Ok... here comes the OE if it is of any use:

Choice E, the best answer, uses constructions that are || to some propose: others suggest..., and still others are calling... Choices A and B immediately lose the || construction, and also produce sentence fragments, by shifting to by suggesting... and by calling... Choice B starts like choice A and then shifts back to the verb call, losing the || with the second part (by suggesting). Choices C and D correctly begin the second part of the || by using suggest. Choice C, however, introduces the nonidiomatic for decreasing, which creates some difficulty in meaning. Choice D loses || construction in the 3rd part by shifting to by calling

The only problem with C, i guess, is the idiom... so the explantion to me wasn't very helpful...

you did great job by copying or typing the whole OE. Really appreciate it..

Choice 'C' is definitely wrong
suggest the reduction of software prices for descreasing is not acceptable..
suggest the reduction of software prices to descrease is acceptable..

when a suggestion is made present participle -ING should not be used..

And also still in option 'E' I think justifies calling

U2lover, thanks once again for the effort..

I also understand the pain in doing the same...

May be the moderators and administrators of this forum should take this into account and help us out here,if possible...Quality time can be spent in discussing or debating rather than doing this stuff

Will go with E.
The parallel structure is some propose â€¦â€¦â€¦.. others suggestâ€¦â€¦â€¦. And still others calling

C is close but for decreasing is unidiomatic

I went with E mainly because of the passive construction in C
