Is the following sentence correct?

"He has a good sense of humor, a pleasant personality and is the type of person who works well in team settings"

Does it break parallelism because of "He HAS [noun], [noun], and IS [noun]"? The HAS can be understood for the middle element, but is it OK for it to not carry over to the last? (since we're not saying "He HAS IS the type of person who [...])

Would appreciate any clarifications on this, as I feel the GMAT might try to trick people into falsely crossing out correct answers using such sentences.

Best,

"He has a good sense of humor, a pleasant personality and is the type of person who works well in team settings"

From what I've seen, this one is definitely incorrect on GMAT. The correct idiom is X, Y, and Z.

GMAT is more likely to use the following constrution in the correct answer:

He has a good sense of humor and a pleasant personality and is the type of person who works well in team settings
[Verb (noun and noun)] AND [Verb]
