If there is no typo
then D

issue is parallelism(A B E OUT)
also X,Y and Z type of format(C OUT)
it cant be X and Y and Z

right side of underlined portion is
"drive them to market when the time is ripe."

This is an awesome Question
sc-oversimplified-view-70342.html

if I can quote SC Guru Bob here
"D has a couple of problems. It says "the only thing that has to be done..." Then it lists three verbs. "Only thing" implies one, not three. And verbs are not things. You can use an infinitive or a gerund as a noun, but not the base form of the verb."
My Question "Is C perfect with that extra AND" or "better among the choices"?

Kudo function is not working(as bb has confirmed)
otherwise +1 for you

what about if choice D were..

D) all one has to do with cattle is leave them alone while they feed themselves, corral them, and drive them to market when the time is ripe.

would it still be correct ( and hence will be the best choice)

Just want to find out whether this is the only problem with D or there are other problems too...

"D has a couple of problems. It says "the only thing that has to be done..." Then it lists three verbs. "Only thing" implies one, not three. And verbs are not things. You can use an infinitive or a gerund as a noun, but not the base form of the verb."
