Tried.... Planted... and even Sold.. Once item doesn't have parallelism. B is correct. All other options don't have this parallelism.

A - Incorrect:

This option is wrong as the use of the noun sale is not parallel to the other verbs of the sentence:

tried, planted.

B - Correct:

This option correctly uses the verb sold in parallel form with the other verbs tried, planted.

C - Incorrect:

This option is wrong as the word sale (noun) is not parallel to the other verbs of the sentence: tried, planted.

D - Incorrect:

generating is incorrect as it is not parallel with the past tense of the sentence.

E - Incorrect:

The noun sale in this option is not parallel to the use of verbs in the previous phrases.
