Please make sure that you are copying the questions correctly. In option E, the question as stated on the web page is missing a comma before 'and'. The original question states (E) and financial advice, and by staying.

This typo could take a few people of' as it did in my case...as the rule states that when a conjunction joins two items and the first item has sub items, then a comma comes before the joining conjunction. Summarily, one needs to close the old series with a comma before opening a new one.

Answer is E.

1. And is necessary as the last service provided by bank is financial services.
2. " By " before staying is necessary because it shows that the bank is staying within the limits. If we don't add " by " it incorrectly adds to a service provided by the bank which is wrong.

If you are point to comma as a error that probably you are wrong. If there are two legnthy parts connected with co-ordinate conjunction, you can use comma before conjunction.

Hi all,
I think (D) can be eliminated since the comma before the second "and" is not required.
We only have two items in the second list : providing and staying.
