E. cattle were traditionally used for beasts of burden, rather than for a food source, and fish were


The answer is A
A has proper open parallelism and fish are plural so we need plural verrb
B use of being is wrong past continuous tense is not required .
C as is missing after rather than
D again as is missing
E "used for" beasts changes meaning as it suggests they were used for beasts rather than as a beasts

Hi,

Could You please help me in ensuring, if as is necessary after rather than in this question.

"cattle were traditionally used as beasts of burden, rather than a food source"

I wanted to know if use of rather than is okay in the above quoted text, or it is erroneous.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi
You are right in finding out that one of the mistakes in the sentence is the missing 'as' after rather than.
the other being a parallelism problem with ' fish being'
