Hello @rahulk2801,

You have done a good analysis of this question to get to the correct answer choice.

However, your reason to reject Choice C is not correct.

There is no parallelism issue in Choice C. This grammatically correct choice does not convey the intended meaning of the sentence.

This choice seems to convey that the eggs of some fish are not their own. they just have them. This is not what the intended meaning of the sentence is.


Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha
