Here's my question, I went with A under the assumption that we have a list that maintains parallelism in the following way:

"for companies that...X and... that Y"

Apparently the second "that" is extraneous and that is therefore incorrect. Is there something I'm missing here, are words such as "that" copied over in some way and therefore no longer needed?

I think this question is not about parallelism but about pronoun. First 'that' is pronoun for 'companies'. And as per sentence structure second 'that' is not not required.

Whther it is correct to use 'it' .As for my view it is referring to 'corporate liability insurance policies '.

Correct me if i am wrong.

between A and E , i don't understand the placement of comma in E after 'and' .

ankitranjan also raised a valid question above.

, as an increasingly well-publicized perk, , it is describing the corporate liability insurance policies as an additional line which can be removed too without making much impact on the meaning of line.

how come it says "purchase it" and not "purchase them"? Doesn't the pronoun it refer to policies?

Yes what is the source of this question. I found myself confused with the answer as well as the correct method to approach this. Thanks.

No way is this one 700+. This is clearly E. See daagh's post above for basic explanation.

,and - represents two independent ideas. [When used without transition words]

There was great deal of traffic today, and I was late to work.

Both are independent.

If it is written as,

There was great deal of traffic today, and thus I was late to work [with transition word thus]

both are dependent.

That's d difference between A and E!. A=> two independent, where as E => dependent hence E!

Please out Thursdays with Ron Videos on AND and SC - Parallelism

The sentence construction is a little tricky;

AND,
| an increasingly well-publicized perk,
THAT
| make it easier for firms to recruit top personnel

Purchase it: When all the choices contain a common error, perhaps we can ignore it and go for other errors; may be this is the weird logic that is the culpirit.

No way is "it" correct in this. Very poor question.

Also, obviously E if you have a native ear.

Here 'it' is referring to corporate policies (plural). Something wrong in this question.
