We have to make the clauses parallel. D and E are contenders.

The given construction is how items are placed. Subject +Verb

So the clause to be made parallel should also follow the same structure.

(D) how frequently is the inventory turned over are often - Verb + Subject
(E) how frequently the inventory turns over can be - Subject +Verb

E follows the required pattern and hence correct.

Can someone explain the parallel issue I do not get how this is supposed to be parallel?

I got E,

because E correctly describes the inventory and "can be" is more clear and concise then D.

How frequently is the inventory turned over are often.

Bolded are wordy and lack concision. (E), OTOH is concise and gets the exact same point across.

IMO E.

D seems to be more of a question rather than a statement. E brings it out perfectly.

Only E does that correctly
