(D).

Interesting sentence structures to pay attention to here.

"Causing hundreds of X and thousands of Y" - this is X & Y consistency demonstrated in answer choice (D).

This X&Y is actually NESTED inside another X&Y framework:

"blamed for causing [X], and seriously damaging [Y]"

So notice the double nested X&Y frameworks. When you spot these sentence structures, it's a lot easier to answer the question by simply applying the appropriate core framework (any 1 of 10) to the question.

In this case you check that "causing" is consistent with "damaging" - CHECK.

You also check the phrasing "hundreds of X" is consistent with "thousands of Y" - CHECK.

Mark (D) and move on.

(A) deaths, injury to thousands, and seriously damaging
(B) deaths and injuring thousands, and serious damage to
(C) deaths, thousands who are injured, as well as seriously damaging
(D) deaths and thousands of injuries, as well as doing serious damage to
(E) deaths, thousands are injured, and they do serious damage to


A. deaths, injury to thousands and damaging - not parallel
B. causing deaths and injuring thousands, and damage - not parallel
C. deaths, thousands, ... damaging - not parallel
D. causing deaths and thousands of injuries, as well as doing serious damage - parallel
E. causing deaths, thousands are injured, and they do... - not parallel

Answer: D

(A) deaths, injury to thousands, and seriously damaging --- bad parallelism
(B) deaths and injuring thousands, and serious damage to --- bad parallelism
(C) deaths, thousands who are injured, as well as seriously damaging --- as well as is not a marker for parallelism.
(D) deaths and thousands of injuries, as well as doing serious damage to ---- correct parallelism around 'and' + 'as well as' is used to add thing up. best option.
(E) deaths, thousands are injured, and they do serious damage to --- they ??? what for???

The context demands parallelism of causing " hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries" as well as doing serious, which the correct option D maintains — no need to bother about other choices. Structurally injuring thousands doesn't sync with serious damage in B
