Intar, the oldest Hispanic theater company in New York, has moved away from the Spanish classics and now it draws on the works both of contemporary Hispanic authors who live abroad and of those in the United States.

(A) now it draws on the works both of contemporary Hispanic authors who live abroad and of those
(B) now draws on the works of contemporary Hispanic authors, both those who live abroad and those who live
(C) it draws on the works of contemporary Hispanic authors now, both those living abroad and who live
(D) draws now on the works both of contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad and who are
(E) draws on the works now of both contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad and those

The original sentence properly uses and to separate the ideas...My doubt is how is it a run-on sentence??

Doubt regarding D.

both x and y

and
y = who are living - refers to the authors that are living

Why aren't X and Y parallel ??

X starts with "of", Y does not start with "of" - moreover, the relative pronoun "who" should have an antecedent. The correct parallel structure would be:

...both (of contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad) and (of those who are..) correct.

Alternatively the preposition "of" can be placed outside the parallel structure:
of both (contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad) and (those who are....) correct.

Many many thanks for your explanation! Just a small clarification

So when we write the sentence as: those who are --- what is the antecedent that who refers to? Is it referring to authors by virtue of 'those' ?
I just assumed that who refers to authors even without 'those' in the sentence

The pronoun "who" does not refer to the same "authors" (contemporary historic authors) stated earlier in the sentence - it refers to some other "authors" (who live in US). Demontrartive adjectives "that" and "those" can create such a copy of a noun previously used in a sentence.

The car you have is costlier than that I have.
Here "that" creates a new copy of "car"; it does not refer to the same "car" mentioned before. Similarly "those" does not refer to the same "authors", but it creates a new copy of "authors", and "who" refers to this new copy. Without "those", "who" would erroneously refer to the previous "authors".

Hi Experts GMATNinja mikemcgarry
Does not ideally below version of (B) makes more sense:
Intar, the oldest Hispanic theater company in New York, has moved away from the
Spanish classics now draws on the works of both contemporary Hispanic
authors, those who live abroad and those who live in the United States.
Also there seems to be clear pronoun ambiguity in (a) since it can refer to Intar or spanish classics

HELLO SIR
option E:
both contemporary hispanic authors living abroad and those in the United States
is the structure parallel?
