B should be the answer
for correct parallelism we need :cities, filming neighborhoods, digitizing old photographs that turned up, and interviewing

Will the option "cities, filmed neighbourhoods,digitized photographs that turned up, and interviewed" be correct? As all these activities are being done by the anthro team, I believe the parallelism is being maintained.

no that would be a faulty parallelism .we can only make things parallel that are supposed to be parallel .
Anthropological research teams visited several Afghan cities .this team further did 3 different things there and hence those 3 things are supposed to be parallel

very hard

many gmatprep test this point, which is that there are many verbs, some of them in doing form. the point here is we need to justify the relation beteen main clause and doing. This job is very hard.

once again, the job of justifying the relation between main clause and comma+doing is very hard. I do this type of question many times , but in a few of the cases I am correct.

thank you for posting this question.

After Anthropological research teams visited they filmed, digitalized and interviewed rather then when they were visiting.

I mean after I will goto LA, I will visit places rather then when i am visiting LA.

Here we have VERBing (filming etc.) modifying visited. Shouldn't we have filmed so show sequence of events by using past participle (first they visited then they filmed)?

Please correct my reasoning, where I am getting wrong?

Anthropological research teams visited several Afghan cities doing few things
    1. filming neighborhoods,
    2. digitizing old photographs that are turning up and
    3. interviewing locals to better understand the aftermath of the decade-long conflict.


A. cities, filming neighborhoods, digitizing old photographs that are turning up and interviewing
Team digitizes the old photos that turned up. This needs to be in simple past tense rather present tense as in given sentence.

B. cities, filming neighborhoods, digitizing old photographs that turned up, and interviewing

C. cities, filmed neighborhoods, digitizing old photographs that turned up, and interviewed...........all 3 items are not in one tense thereby ruining parallelism.

D. cities and filmed neighborhoods, digitizing old photographs that are turning up, and interviewed..........
and instead of verb+ing modifier
present tense error as in A
parallelism error as in C


E. cities, filmed neighborhoods, digitized old photographs, turned up and interviewed.........turned up as an independent event and seems to indicate that photos are tuned up and inteviewed locals as well does not make sense at all.

Hi,
Can you please explain why C is wrong?
visited,filmed and interviewed seem parallel to me while digitizing works as a modifier.

.

Here techiesam
Anthropological research teams visited several Afghan cities doing 3 things namely filming X, digitizing Y and interviewing Z(locals).

As per option C, teams visited cities filming X, digitizing Y and interviewed locals. This just doesn't make sense since the sentence is improper as it seems that they are getting interviewed(this doesn't make sense either and misses proposition by before locals).

It flaws the parallelism concept as well.
