Typo - changed 'presenting' to 'preventing'

Hi nahid78 and csaluja,

I can step in for Mike here :-)

This is a very badly written sentence, and a terrible explanation! None of the answer choices here are completely grammatically correct. Choice A is definitely incorrect -- the extra "and" is unnecessary. There is no reason that we need to have "can" in all of the last three reasons. Choice B applies parallelism the best, and is mostly correct. Here is a version of the sentence that would be correct, which is closest to choice B:

In Hinduism, cows are considered sacred and are given the highest respect because they provide a constant supply of milk, their dung can be used as fertilizer for plants, their hair can be used for making paintbrushes, and their urine can be used as a therapeutic agent to prevent various diseases.

I hope that's helpful! :-)

A. they provide constant supply of milk, and their dung can be used as fertilizer for plants, their hair can be used for making painting brushes, and their urine can be used as a therapeutic agent-------------correct , parallelism
B. they provide constant supply of milk, their dung can be used as fertilizer for plants, their hair can be used for making painting brushes, and their urine can be used as a therapeutic agent----------providing milk and their uses should be separated
C. they provide constant supply of milk, and their dung can be used as fertilizer for plants, and their hair can be used for making painting brushes, and their urine can be used as a therapeutic agent------ 'and' is used frequently--incorrect
D. just as they provide constant supply of milk, their dung can be used as fertilizers for plants, their hair can be used for making painting brushes, as well as their urine can be used as a therapeutic agent----- incorrect formation
E. they provide constant supply of milk, dung as fertilizers for plants, hair for painting brushes, and urine can be used a therapeutic agent.----providing milk and their uses should be separated.

Hi, I was wondering if one of you experts could please explain the difference between option A and B. I thought B follows the rules of parallelism perfectly (Please correct me if I am wrong) as the list is in A, B, C, and D order. Or would you say this is simply a blind parallelism? Please explain! Would greatly appreciate it!

Hi,

Can anyone please help me understand how is A a better choice than B?
It is a list of uses, so I believe they should be connected with just one "And" as done in B.

Thanks in advance.
