Hi ,

in A , it appears that the Disk is found in Software stores and accounting texts.

Is the Disk found in Accounting Texts also?

I am not sure if my reasoning is right.

I will go between C and D.

ckarimanoor
the deal here is, D makes the situation too specific in my opinion.
'a disk,a store,an accounting text'.
We are looking at a number of disks which are available in a software store through which taxes can be paid. Also,the other way of filing taxes is through an accounting text.

This explanation is entirely an opinion i hold.
Feel free to discuss.

Choice A maintains parallelism and addresses the plural subject correctly ( 3 out of 7 people )

Ans- IMO C.

"an" is required before Accounting Text.Hence option A,B are out.
"disks found in stores and an accounting book" seems correct.

But could someone confirm as well??

Sorry the answer should be B, because a person can file only 1 tax return and in the questions he mentioned plural i.e stores and texts so we should not change that

So i would go with B
