+1 for B.

A. including treating cancer, relieving arthritis, and it is able to dull

B. including treating cancer, relieving arthritis, and dulling --> Correct, maintains parallel construct

C. including the treatment of cancer, relieving arthritis, and dulling

D. which includes treating cancer, relieving arthritis, and it is able to dull

E. which includes treating cancer, relieving arthritis, and dulling --> S-V error, 'applications' do not go well with 'includes'

Hence, B.

KAPLAN OFFICIAL SOLUTION:




Correct Choice: (B)

All items in a list must be expressed in parallel form. Two items in the original version are gerunds (“treating..., relieving...”), but the third is not. The simplest correction is to make the third item a gerund as well, and only choice (B) correctly does this (“dulling pain”).

Choice (C) uses “dulling” too, but needlessly and erroneously changes one of the original terms (“treating” to “the treatment of”).

Choices (D) and (E) use the singular construction “which includes,”which does not agree with the plural “applications”.

To make this sentence parallel, we need "dulling" as the third element.
So, B is the answer.
