IMO B

I think the meaning here is Globalization should not be limited to X and should extend to Y
then only B convey the right meaning rest of the answer choices have parallelism issues (I guess)

What is the OA?

This question is referring to two aspects of globalization, 1st expectations on limitations of capital movement and extension of the free movement of people...in a nutshell expect limitation on one aspect and extension on the other.

Option A & B both have passive construction and has parallelism issue.
C changes the meaning...applies limitations to both and so does D which talk about moral obligation.
IMO the correct answer is E.

globalization ( singular ) : verb should be singular EXTENDS : kills A n E

the intent : globalization cannot be limited to X......and should/must extend to Y

C : G is limited to X...........AND..........Y : the intended contrast ( limit/extend ) disappears : eliminated

bxn B n D :

D : G..............should have Extension to Y

B : G..............must Extend to Y

guess now we can easily zone in on B

I think statement C is incomplete.

Out of rest of the statement B is correct as expected is redundant and extend needs as verb.

Here is a different stroke.

Does the text want to say “G cannot be limited to the X and extend to the Y”? If that was the intension, then the conjunction should be ‘but’ and not ‘and’; that is the reason it can be said that the text does not want to contrast but simply affirm two same direction phenomena. I am unable to take any choice that uses ‘and’ while deviating in the second leg. Therefore, I would drop A, B, D and E. Note on the other hand C does not intend any contrast. It is happy with mentioning two phenomena that G cannot be limited to. It is neither incomplete as a contributor has suggested. When parsed rightly, it reads

Globalization cannot be limited to (the free movement of capital and the free movement of people)

In fact globalization encompasses the local and the national influences in so many fields such as not only financial and economical but also environmental, political, social and cultural processes that are in interplay among the players involved. Don’t we see such impacts in our day- to -day lives? This is the gist of the argument. Hence why not C?

First and foremost, C is incomplete.
Second, it is possible to use 'and' in such statements as:
You can not be contended with your low score on GMAT and must prepare harder.

Coming back to the question in hand, we are not showing contrast but extension of same phenomena as you correctly pointed out. And that is why we have to maintain same tone in both parts of this sentence. Therefore,
Globalization cannot be expected to be limited to the free movement of capital and must extend to the free movement of people
is absolutely correct.

Ans B it is.
