after lead to we need a noun or a noun phrase, so that the entities of the list be parallel.
as well as - wordy, "and" can be more precise and short.


A. lowering interest rates, as well as lowering fears about inflation,
as mentioned above.

B. a lowering of interest rates and of fears about inflation,
we have noun phrase a lowering.
of interest rates and of fears about inflation are parallel

C. a lowering of interest rates, along with fears about inflation,
changes meaning
large drop in oil price leads to 2 things: lowering of interest rates, and in the same time - fears about inflation. this is not the original meaning.

D. interest rates being lowered, along with fears about inflation,
same meaning error as C has.

E. interest rates and fears about inflation being lowered, with
changes meaning. a large drop in oil prices leads to interest rates and fears
wait what? :)

At issue is the need for logical and formal parallelism in a coordinate series. B, the best choice, clearly and
correctly uses parallel noun phrases to list three effects of a drop in oil prices: a lowering of..., a rally in ..., and
a weakening of.... In place of the correct lower before/ears, choice A uses an incorrect participial adjective,
lowering, that could cause confusion by seeming at first to function as a verb. A also violates parallelism. In C
and D, the use of along with confuses meaning by making fears about inflation an independent effect, not an
object of lowering. D and E violate parallelism by substituting an awkward gerund clause for the first noun
phrase.
