Which one is correct.

1. Either by x, y and z
2. By either x, y or z.
3. Either by x, by y or by z.

Now keeping in mind the parallelism, I think 2 and 3 are correct, aren't they?
In 2, by is kept common outside of either-or
In 3, by is kept with all elements within either-or.

Now in 1, it seems that by is associated with only X. Now see, elements following either and or must be parallel.
here either by x, y or z.
I think D and E are incorrect from above logic.

Please tell me where I am wrong.

As per Kaplan Prep 2018 that I have, "either" does not appear in any of the 5 options.

nkin , thanks for the heads up.

This whole deal is weird.
I just found an online "peek" into Kaplan 2016, and "either" does not appear in any of the options.

This question was posted in 2017.

The online blog at Kaplan defines either/or as "between two things."

Every editor I know, yours truly included, allows "either/or" only in the case two items.

It looks as if Kaplan editors corrected their mistake.

Let me find out the exact protocol for questions that have changed.
Topic thread merging is at issue.
I want to be certain.

Until then, I will lock this thread.
At the moment it appears that not one of these options is correct.
