A. All the other ones break parallelism.

E is wrong, beckee529, because parallelism is violated.

isn't 'propose' and 'suggesting' redundent? shouldn't the verb for the second clause be 'reducing'?

thanks.


E is perfect actually. It maintains clear present tense parallelism by propose/suggest/are calling.
I would rather be more comfortable if it used "call" instead of "are calling" but then not everything is according to my wish.

C is wrong becase "for verbING"- this form is ALWAYS inferior to "to VERB" when you want to denote intent/action.
