Hi

My understanding:

The new TV show does the below:
1. Featured a) Football coach
b) Musicians
2. Appealed

I believe Choice B presents the accurate meaning as per the above understanding.

Thanks
Harsh

A. an appeal
the TV show featured a football coach, musicians, and an appeal
all are noun and perfectly parallel (correct)

B. appealed

one can be tempted here and mark this as correct answer ---because it seems featured and appealed are parallel to each other but this is not the case
the sentence says that the tv shows feature 3 things and list out those three things parallelism is over there

C. appealing
incorrect parallelism ---we need noun,noun, and noun---appealing is adjective so is not parallel

D. he has appealed
incorrect parallelism and what does he refers to

E. that he has appealed
incorrect parallelism--the TV show featured a football coach, musicians, and that he has appealed

Hi shridhar,

I agree with you. I missed the parallel construction marker 'and' while analysing.Thanks for pointing it out.

Thanks
