Yeah, OG 11, 12 eliminated this question cause the OA E is too unparallel.

This must be obviously a llism of list; just for my curiosity, can somebody point out the various arms of the list and how E maintains the llism between or among the arms.

Re: while some propose..some combat : SC parallelism [#permalink] New post 11 Apr 2011, 07:12
Daagh,
Could you give an explanation?
I read this question as:
To combat....,some people propose X, while others suggest Y , still others call for Z.
X=attempting to... (or attempt)
Y=reducing (or reduction)
Z=prosecuting (or prosecution)
propose || suggest|| call
and X||Y||Z

I dont see anything in similar line of thought...

I agree with Eden. Certainly this is not a topic that will stand good to common reasoning, especially the way non-natives like me have been taught to look at parallelism. The three verbs in tandem are the present tense- propose, suggest and are calling-, as found in E, although the third verb is a bit of a baffle in that it is a present progressive. But considering that the other nearest choice C, which maintains almost equal parallelism among all the three verbs under question, has serious idiomatic flaws such as ‘for decreasing’, we have to grudgingly reconcile to Choice E.
Choice A is a fragment; B and D fault on parallelism.

This is as far as I could go on this. Incidentally, was this choice ever carried over from OG 10 to OG 11 and then on to OG 12? I doubt.
