Hello!
I got this question right and spotted parallelism error very easy but just want to ask whether the presence of 'expert' with authority would be mandatory or is option E ok without 'expert'?

For those who missed the correlative conjunction parallelism of 'both … and', here is yet another quick fix and you don't have to look at the prompt.

Just kick out A, B, and D for using the redundant expert authority; Dump c for using a wrong idiom 'account about' rather than 'account on'.

Incidentally, the word 'expert' is as much a noun as an adjective, just as 'executive' or 'absolute' is or 'unique' is in rare cases.
