1Min 20Sec.

IMO (A) is best.

Besides Idiom, I think it has to do with "continuity" of the action.

(A), (C) only represents a continues action, needless to say (C) is awkward.

"to dispose of" is the right idiom
A is also parallel

Hi folks,

I dont agree with your answers.
to dispose of - is the idiom

disposing of - phrasal verb
disposing - transitive verb

Let us get rid of "or servicing" in the sentence and see how it looks

anyone disposing of refrigerators must capture the chlorofluorocarbons in the refrigerant chemicals.

The construction in(A) is least parallel

take a look at
http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=disposing%20of

look at the following sentence taken from environmental protection agency
website

We all share responsibility in helping to reduce ozone destruction by disposing of appliances properly. You can help by thinking about refrigerant recovery before arranging for pickup or disposal of your used appliances.

The bold portion here is phrasal verb.

This Q is from 885SC and there are some typos in many questions and some have wrong answers as well.
OA need not be correct always.

Can someone explain succintly why AC B is wrong? It doesnt change meaning nor does it break the parallelism rule?

I dont think there is anything wrong with B, but it is verbose and unncessary wordy. why do you want to use a restrictive clause when the same thing can be expressed in participle phrase.

check these 2 example

Anywho who is intending to run for president must submit his or her application first.

Anyone intending to for president must submit his or her application first.

there is no difference in the meaning of these sentences, but definetly first one is wordy. Second is stating the intended meaning with less and concise words.

Ritesh,

But I am very uncomfy with using "disposing of". It does not appear to be the correct idiom and as Anand stated, A seems to be least parallel.
