I would go with answer A for the reason of parallelism. All other 4 answer choices does not seem parallel to me.

My take is also D.

For a second, Eileen 1017 reasoning appeared to be correct but after closer look my initial guess was right.

called for urban apartment houses including child-care facilities and clustered suburban houses including communal eating and social facilities.

Eilleen reasoning was parallelism by having "Including" in both the phases that were compared.

(A) including child-care facilities and clustered suburban houses including communal eating and social facilities

including is wrong here.


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

"to include" is incorrect.

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

"with .. " - you don't need included. also - to include is wrong.

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

perfect.

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


A satisfies parallelism for "including" as well as "for X and Y".

X = urban apartment houses including child-care facilities
Y = clustered suburban houses including communal eating and social facilities

I don't understand how D is a better choice :(

"called for urban apartment houses including child-care facilities"
This means child-care facilities are a type of apartment houses. This obviously is wrong
Hence IMO D is correct

(A) including child-care facilities and clustered suburban houses including communal eating and social facilities
- distort IIism after AND
(B) that included child-care facilities, and for clustered suburban houses to include communal eating and social facilities
- Comma (,) before and distorts the meaning + use of Infinitive in 2nd part of sentence also distort IIism
(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
correct - maintain IIism across AND
(E) to include child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities included
use of Infinitive - before in 1st part of sentence distorts the IIism

As I understand this problem, Gilman called for two things 1. Urban houses including blah and 2. clustered rural houses including blah blah. The preposition -for–stands common for both for urban houses and rural houses. This is a perfectly acceptable construction.
Eg: I wanted to take GMAT in November, resign my services in December and join the School in January. This is quite parallel; we don’t have to say - I wanted to take GMAT in November, to resign my services in December and to join the School in January. So A might be a very good choice

Incidentally this passage is beyond the simple prepositional - for parallelism, since all the other four choices except A maintain the -for parallelism -

Let us also appreciate that she called for those two things because they were not extant then. So it is wrong to say -called for urban apartment houses that included child-care facilities -. If the urban houses already included those facilities, why will any one call for them again? The right expression should be something futuristic as - that would include childcare facilities -
That is why A might score over D, since the use of the participle -including - in A is time –neutral.

The correct answer is D.
Reasoning:
CPG, a feminist, called for urban apartment houses that included x and for clustered sub urban houses with y.

The parts that follow the bold words play the role of describing the nouns.So we need not check them for parallelism.
Neither should we check for parallelism of main verb with modifiers or with participle phrases.

A distorts the meaning of the sentence. it makes clustered suburban houses parallel to child care facilities but not to urban apartment houses.
In the above example, it becomes CPG called for urban apartment houses that included (x) and (clustered suburban houses with y).
But the answer should be CPG called for(urban apartment houses that included x) and for (clustered suburban houses with y).

Hope this helps.

"including child care facility"

I thought the child care facility was part of urban housing and so urban housing should include child care facility.

This means answer choice should start with "that included"

It is between B and D

"D" doesnt seem right because it has "with including". that doesn't make sense. My take is B
