"are bankrolling"; "pumping" clause acts as an adverbial modifier; Parallelism : into 1. medical malpractice claims, 2. divorce battles and 3. class actions against corporations.

Large banks, hedge funds and private investors hungry for new and lucrative opportunities are bankrolling other people‘s lawsuits, pumping hundreds of millions of dollars for medical malpractice claims, divorcing battles and class actions against corporations.

by removing the portion with the strike through, we can see that options B and D are incorrect

Option A: are bankrolling other people‘s lawsuits, pumping hundreds of millions of dollars for medical malpractice claims, divorcing battles and class actions against corporations.

"For" seems odd. Put it to the side and review C and E

Option C: are bankrolling other people‘s lawsuits, pumping hundreds of millions of dollars intomedical malpractice claims, divorce battles and class actions against corporations

"into" sounds a lot better. Hold C and throw away A.

Option E: are bankrolling other people‘s lawsuits, for pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into medical malpractice claims, for divorce battles and class actions against corporations

has into, but also has for in front of divorce battles. This changes the meaning of the sentence by making medical malpractice claims directly connected to divorce battles.

The Parallelism is an issue here.

There are two list. First, bankrolling...... and pumping......no issue here
Second list is for medical malpractice claims, divorcing battles and class actions.......problem is here and corrected in C.

A --> Parallelism issue
B --> Changes the tense, however I dont see any issue with parallelism.
D --> parallelism issue.
E --> same issue.

However, I need some confirmation.

If we discount the change of tense, isnt option B grammatically correct. In Option D, changing "are bankrolling" to "to bankroll" also results in loss of verb.

"pumping..... " is a present participle modifier that modifies the entire previous clause " Large banks...... are bankrolling other people‘s lawsuits". The present participle modifier "pumping..." depicts how Large banks etc. are bankrolling other people's money; "pumping" and "bankrolling" are not parallel items in a list.

So the correct sentence means as below:

other people‘s lawsuitspumping hundreds of millions of dollars into
medical malpractice claims,
divorce battles and
class actions against corporations

Please correct me if am wrong

Probably there are some typos in the sentence in your response. The correct option means:

Large banks etc. are bankrolling lawsuits BY pumping dollars into medical claims etc.

Only structures in B and C make logical and grammatical senses.
B is wrong b/c "class actions" is a noun.
Also, " lawsuits" is modified in C. -> C is better than B.
