"Every one of the police reports " will not be tested in the actual gmat; here, Kaplan just wants to confuse test takers.

D is correct because it makes the most precise parallelism: "either by its case number, the date it was created, or the victim's last name ".

Please Kudos if it helps

Why D is correct?

I find E maintains parallelism in it.
either by X or by Y

Both in option D and E, we have "either by", so IMO rest of the items also should have "by" to maintain parallelism.

I am convinced neither by D nor by E ?
Or
I am convinced neither by D nor E ?

Can someone explain ?

E commits a violation in the parallel structure. This is an important pattern in gmat.
by X,Y,Z /// by X, by Y, by Z
both of them are correct. Other structures like the one in E is wrong.

I fail to understand why E option is not parallel: can anyone explain why it is wrong

You have "by" before case number, you have "by" before victim's last name but no "by" before "the date"..
So, not parallel StrugglingGmat2910.
Hope it's clear now.

Now i understood. I understood E is in this format "by X, (modifies X) or by Y" - Only two branches X and Y.
But the answer needs to be "by X, Y or Z"

Hi Imyuva, the correct answer should be “ by x, y or z” or “by x, by y or by z”

Both are correct: In the first case, "by" is outside the parallel structure (hence used once and covers all the three elements), in the latter inside (hence repeated).

I am going with D. Reason

The structure "every one of the X's" is always singular. 
example:-
Every one of us is happy. 
Every one of the students is happy. 

So left with C, D and E

C) has been filed so that they can be located either by their case number, the date they were created,or the victim's last name. They cannot refer to Everyone. We need IT

D) has been filed so that it can be located either by its case number, the date it was created, or the victim's last name

E) has been filed so that it can be located either by its case number, the date it was created, or by the victim's last name . In E we have 3 things that need to be parallel. case number, the date it was created and the victim's last name. by using "BY" before the victim's last name its makes the sentence not parallel.

Everyone is singular so we need to use ‘has’ and after ‘either by’ we have a perfect parallel structure…..so correct choice is D

Hey Sayantanc

Just to be 100 percent sure

In a sentence

... either by X, Y or Z... is correct and you too agree that the option D has correct parallelism ?

Pls suggest.
