IMO-E b'coz this is only option which has verbs ("require" , "Carry" and "Offer") in parallel.

for parallelism, shouldn't it be :

jobs that require >>> few skills, little x and offer ...

few x, little y...how is "carry" fitting in?
Also, doesnt this involve modifiers too?

This is as well from 1000 Q, Question set 16, Question 21. Answer as I've given is C. It's somewhat // structure. However, we need to closely look at the structure as well as the MEANING! It should be read: "require few skills, little responsibility, and offer no hope..." SO, the job requires few skills and little responsibility, and offers no hope.

Does this mean that because of the ,and (Most teen-agers who work for pay hold jobs that require few skills, little responsibility, and also no hope for career advancement) - it essentially makes only the first 2 phrases (few skills, little responsilibity) the only parts that need to be parallel?

I'm thinking that because of the ,and, the two parts of the sentence are separate, therefore, require and offer does not need to be parallel.

I hope what I wrote made sense... :cry:
