A- this statement is ambiguous i.e. is the clustered suburban houses parallel with child-care facilities or with urban apartment houses?

Problem with A is that it is Ambiguous:

"called for urban apartment houses including childcare facilities and clustered suburban houses ...." - it looks like urban houses are inceluding both childcare facilities and susburban houses

However this could have been best option if there would have been a "Comma" before and included


"called for urban apartment houses including childcare facilities , andclustered suburban houses ...." - this would have helped to clear the ambiguity

and all other options clear that ambiguity but choice D is best among them.

I hope that helps :)

(A) including child-care facilities and clustered suburban houses including communal eating and social facilities
(B) that included child-care facilities, and for clustered suburban houses to include communal eating and social facilities
(C) with child-care facilities included and for clustered suburban houses to include communal eating and social facilities
(D) that included child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities
(E) to include child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities included


in A, including is form of "doing", not a preposition . comma+including is different.

we do not need to repeat "for". so, A is ok.

in D ,"that included" and "hourse with.." are both ok but are not parallel. so D is inferior to A.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman, a late nineteenth-century feminist, called for urban apartment houses including child-care facilities and clustered suburban houses including communal eating and social facilities.

(A) including child-care facilities and clustered suburban houses including communal eating and social facilities
Parallelism is not respected, we need "and for" -> called for urban apartment .... and for ....

(B) that included child-care facilities, and for clustered suburban houses to include communal eating and social facilities
NOK

(C) with child-care facilities included and for clustered suburban houses to include communal eating and social facilities
"With" and "included" are redundant

(D) that included child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities
Correct

(E) to include child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities included
NOK

one thing to know is that "include" has the same meaning as "with" so that we can eliminate C&E
B is wrong because of the "," A is wrong because "including" changes the meaning

The only reason option D is better than option A is that 'including' in A changes the meaning whereas D conveys correct meaning by specifying that 'child care facilities' is part of urban houses not child care facilities is type of urban houses. Same logic applies to non urban houses.

Good one! though a bit confusing on parallelism in D.
I was expecting "that included .............and urban apartment houses that included...."
But I finally realized that D is the correct answer.
