+1 for D.

(A) more rapidly during dreams than when waking --> Parallel error "During X than when Y"

(B) when dreaming more rapidly than waking hours --> Changes meaning

(C) more rapidly during dreaming than waking --> Parallel error "During X than Y"

(D) more rapidly during dreams than during the period of time when a person is awake --> Correct, rectifies parallel error "During X than During Y", and conveys the intended meaning

(E) more rapidly when dreaming than when waking --> When only the latter part of the sentence is taken into consideration, the sentence does not give clear meaning
i.e, Eye movement occurs more rapidly when dreaming than when waking

Hence, D.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



B incorrectly associates ‘more rapidly’ with dreaming rather than with eye movement. A, C and E incorrectly refer to the process of waking rather than the period of time of being awake. Choice D is the correct answer.
