In second thought A also seems correct
Doesn't A contain ||ism??

A does seem to be || but ' that had been ' seems out of place.
I would have picked it if it would have been ' in crushed strawberries '.
Thats my line of thought.

Doesn't C change the meaning in some sense? It got rid of "bath-tub". Not that i have anything special for bathtubs, but i think getting rid of "bathtub" modifies the intent of the author. Thoughts?

i pick C too.

rule out A because of awkward ||ism.

bathe in cold milk, ...in strawberries ... in bath tub...

should be

bathe in cold milk, ...in strawberries ... in black caviar

C

A: I want to have a bath in honey, chocolates, and the kitchen sink filled with germs. Sounds correct? No way. A is out for lacking ||ism
B::tense is all over the place. incorrect
D maybe, but C is better
E changes the meaning

Yea can go for a straight C.

Jus a doubt guys. It luks that the idiom also is being tested here. Is the correct idiom "found X to b Y" or "found X that Y"

nice humor...

I agree with C... A just doesn't cut here because we assume that cold milk and crushed strawberries are filling the tub as much as the caviar. thus A isn't parallel

C
