We need to make the list of items parallel to each other, on observation, we see that only D does that properly
Always keep in mind that we need to make the list simillar to the item which is just before the "and"

Here the real problem is that we have two things on one side parallel and three other things on the other side.

The other three things: OR you put TO in ALL 3 items OR only in the first one NOT in the first and third one. Is wrong...

Though in my opinion is not the top as question. it seems a bit inconsistent

This question is unusual. Although it tests parallelism, it makes use of the dash.

Here the dash is used to emphasize a point. The dash could also be used to set off independent clauses.

The Company Veritas Gives its solution like this-

D. This question tests parallel structure of a series of events, and delves into logic with the logical grouping of certain events. In the original sentence, the first two events in the series are led with "to" ("to access, to use") and the third does not possess the parallel connector "to" ("and develop"). Because it's not parallel, it's incorrect.

While you examine that first sentence, you should note that there are two grouped series of events - one about using the internet (access email / use the internet) and the other about job search (develop skills, look for jobs, seek information). In the original, the latter three are grouped, and you should see that the first two have a logical grouping, too. So in the correct answer choice, D, the fact that "to access...and use" is one item and "and to develop, look, and seek" is a second makes that two-part list parallel and the individual lists within each are also parallel.

In the other incorrect answer choices, parallel structure is broken either between the two families of events, or within the second series of events.

My Doubt:
I believe B also has the element of parallelism.

to access email, use the Internet.......and develop computer skills

Example

to X, Y and Z

I believe this is also in parallel, because to can be used only Once.

The only issue I see with B is it is missing to develop computer skills. D fixes this issue hence the answer.

Parallelism is satisfied in D as follows:

to access email, use internet and to develop computer skills, look for jobs

The answer options can be rephrased as below.

A. to access email, to use the Internet and develop computer skills, look for jobs, and seek information about government benefits.
B. to access email, use the Internet and develop computer skills, look for jobs, and seek information about government benefits. [Seems fine]
C. to access email, use the Internet and for developing computer skills, looking for jobs, and to seek information about government benefits. [Violates Parallelism]
D. to access e-mail and use the Internet and to develop computer skills, look for jobs, and seek information about government benefits. [Seems fine]
E. to access email and use the Internet and to develop computer skills and look for jobs, and to seek information about government benefits. [the 'and' must be a comma to show a list.]

So, it is between B and D.

Both B and D seem correct to me.

I chose B. I didn't like D because I would rather say ' to access internet and use the email' than saying 'to access email and use the internet'.

'to develop computer skills' will be wrong in B, because there is no conjunction between 'access email' and 'use the Internet'.

In B the "and" before develop is what is causing trouble IMO. It is improperly placed, it is either "and to develop" or the "and" should be removed entirely to have continuation.

It is either

"to access email, use internet, develop computer skills, look for jobs ..."
or
"to access email, use internet and to develop computer skills, look for jobs..."

There is no such confusion with D.

Can anyone explain why choice B (2) is not parallel?

...they are also places to
(1) access email,
(2) use the Internet – approximately 100 million Americans do not have a high-speed connection at home – and develop computer skills,
(3) look for jobs,
(4) and seek information about government benefits.

IMO,
this is quite ambiguous sentence..
in ans. option B,der seems to b bettr parallelism..


it says,

libraries are places to access email,use internet and develop comp. skills,look for jobs and seek.....

Highly confused bcz D doesnt really maintain such an exclusive parallelism..wat say?

I found the differences between B and D. You cannot put "and" in the middle of parallel phrase.

B: (access email, use the Internet) and (develop computer skills, look for jobs), and (seek...)

D: to (access email and use the Internet) and to (develop computer, look for jobs, and seek)

Hello friend.. :)

there are basically 4 entities which we need to show that they are parallel..

here,use internet and develop computer skill is one of the 4 entities in the list..it also makes sense to keep "use internet and develop comp. skills in one entity as one can learn comp. skills through making the use of internet...

for eg.

i like cycling,wearing the costume and swimming,and running.. ;)


In D however,ders no point in separating the list because all the entities are talking about the uses of internet access in library..
if u want to seperate the list of entities using and, then both the lists should be talking about different subjects,idea or topic..

although both B and D may b gramatically correct,but B makes it parallel more appropriately..

Wat say?

There are parallel entities in this sentence-

1) Libraries remain valuable repositories valuable of books, publications, and research anthologies
2) places to access email and to develop computer skills
3) access email and use the internet
4) develop computer skills, look for jobs, and seek information

Only option D states all the parallel elements correctly .

The use of hyphen is not appropriate in the original sentence and all of the options. The usage of "And" signifying parallelism is uniform in Option D hence the best out of the worst!

If D is plugged into the original sentence one arm of the parallel structure reads as:

"libraries are places to develop computer skills" doesn't it sound awkward?

On the other hand, if B is plugged into the original sentence and individual arms are -

"libraries are places to access email"
"libraries are places to use the internet and develop computer skills"
"libraries are places to look for jobs"
"libraries are places to seek information about government benefits"

Between B & D - B sounds better to me
