Are they parallel? If, how? please explain.

Hi nahid78, this is because both domesticated and performing are participles (domesticated is past participle, while performing is present participle).

If your question is whether present participle is considered parallel to past participle, then the answer is yes.

In fact, since participles are adjectives, participles are also considered parallel to adjectives. For example:

James was tall, but stooping.
- tall is an adjective, while stooping is present participle.

Let me know if you are looking for an official example and I can dig it up real quick.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses this concept, its application and examples in significant detail. If someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.

A. covering as much as 90 percent of thailand and accommodating as many as 300,000 elephants, a third of them
B. covering as much as 90 percent of thailand accommodated as much as 300,000 elephants, and a third of them were
C. Covered as much as 90 percent of thailand and accommodated as much as 300,000 elephants, with a third
D. Covered as much as 90 percent of thailand and accommodated as many as 300,000 elephants, a third of them
E. Covered as much as 90 percent of thailand and accommodated as much as 300,000 elephants, with a third of them



The underlined potion extends till tasks in the question,do edit it.
My reasoning
A-No verb---Ing simply acts as modifiers.
B- it should be as many as
C-same as B
D-Correct...Verb is introduced and parallel structure is maintained
E- Same as B

Just as an aside, I am surprised that in this GMAT - originated question, a country can have 90% of its land as forest cover, even more than what the forest - ridden African States. Does GMAT believe so?
