Are you sure about the OA? With chemical imbalance as a rarity sounds awkward. IMO A should be the answer... as per the meaning of the sentence, Causes of mental illness are Mainly environmental- X,Y & Z & chemical imbalances .

I am unable to understand what is wrong with option C,D and E.

I have added my bit of explanation below.

A noted psychoanalyst claims that the causes of mental illness are mainly environmental – extreme poverty, lack of adequate parenting, and sexual abuse – and chemical imbalances rarely.

Lets start with the meaning of the sentence. It says the causes of mental illness are mainly environmental factors such as extreme poverty, lack of adequate parenting and sexual abuse and not so much due to chemical imbalance.

Error Analysis-
Structure X and Y is wrong. Because one factor outweighs the other as per meaning of the sentence.

A) and chemical imbalances rarely- eliminate
B) and chemical imbalance being rare-eliminate
C) with chemical imbalance as rare
D) chemical imbalances a rarity-
E) with chemical imbalance as a rarity

Can someone discuss this in detail please. bunnuel,: GMATNinjaTwo, aragonn, sudarshan22, GMATNinja, hazelnut, Vyshak, generis
