Parallelism issue. INCORRECT

C. High temperatures, expansive beaches, and active volcanoes annually attract close to seven million tourists to the Hawaiian Islands each year.

D. High temperatures, expansive beaches, and active volcanoes attract close to seven million tourists to the Hawaiian Islands each year.

I don't see any issues. Also this states an observation in simple present tense

This question is about parallelism . Time modifiers come last in the sentence. Having , being or passive construction must be avoided.

The best answer is D.

Hi funsogu

There are certain rules to be followed while you post your answer to a question in the forum, your one word answer is not of any help to others.

Please be specific about why do you feel the option is a correct answer.

Avoid Short/Useless Posts (they will be deleted) and use the Kudos Button Instead. - If you choose to answer a question, please answer only if your post adds value. Saying “+1 A”, "Awesome solution!" or “Great Question!” does not. Pressing the Kudos button does.

Dear GMATGuruNY

While I choose OA: D as it conscience and direct, I have a question.

The official explanation from Manhattan:

The original sentence lacks parallel structure. “Beaches that are expansive” disrupts the adjective-noun pattern of “High temperatures” and “active volcanoes.” Furthermore, the phrase “beaches that are expansive” is wordy and a more concise form “expansive beaches” is preferred.

Can I cancel A based on parallelism problem only? Is not temperatures, beaches and volcanoes are all nouns but modified differently? temperatures and volcanoes are in form of adjective modifier while beaches is in form of relative clause modifier , is it justifiable to delete OA based on parallelism issue only here? Must all noun modified either by adjectives only or relative clauses only?

NOUN + that-modifier can be parallel with MODIFIER + NOUN.
SC17 in the OG12:
The commission has directed advertisers to restrict the use of the word “natural” to foods that do not contain flavor additives, chemical preservatives, or anything that has been synthesized.
In this OA, the green portion (NOUN + that-modifier) is considered parallel with the preceding blue portions (each composed of MODIFIER + NOUN).
That said, entries in a list should be AS PARALLEL AS POSSIBLE.
In the Manhattan SC, D is more parallel than A -- as well as more concise than A -- and is free of errors.
For these reasons, eliminate A and choose D.
