KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



B

The underlined portion of this sentence follows a comma, includes another comma and the conjunction "and," and is preceded by the key words "such as." These clues indicate a series, in which all the elements must have parallel form. The first element is attending class. Because it is not underlined, the rest of the series must be adapted to match it. Reading assignments matches attending class, but to write does not, so (A) is out. The answer needs to replace to write with writing. Only (B) does so.

The original sentence has parallelism error.

List of parallel entities:
1) attending class,
2) reading assignments, and
3) writing papers

The original sentence uses to + verb form for "write". Instead verb+ing form should be used to make "write" parallel with "attending" and "reading".
