This is not from GMATPrep, this is the original question: minivans-carry-as-many-as-seven-passengers-and-compared-103961.html

This is the correct version of it:
Minivans carry as many as seven passengers and, compared with most sport utility vehicles, cost less, get better gas mileage, allow passengers to get in and out more easily, and have a smoother ride.

Yes. Generally speaking the last element of a list should have "and". "I do X,Y and Z" is correct over "I do X and Y and Z" if we want to make a list

There are multiple versions of the questions notice these 2 questions they are almost same but there is subtle difference... Testing a different concept...

Minivans carry as many as seven passengers, and compared with sport utility vehicles, most cost less, get better gas mileage, and make it easy for passengers to get in and out, and have a smoother, more car-like ride.

A. and make it easy for passengers to get in and out
B. and allow passengers to get in and out easily
C. and allow passengers to get in and out more easily
D. make it easier for passengers when getting in and out
E. allow passengers to get in and out more easily

The theme concentrates on the positive effects of the minivans against the SUVs, they are cost effective, comparative good mileage ,good in/out facility and smooth ride as cars do.


A- another and changes the meaning of the sentence
B-Same
C-Same
D- it has no direct reference, it should refer to minivans, which is plural
E-Correct

There are two aspects : one is operation features and the other is consumer perception. So we need an 'and' here as the first list is about operational features. Option C is apt as to compare we need "more easily"

Option d is correct as 'and' is not required since it is not last item in the list. Also, need to keep parallelism of comparison between thing of minivan and that of other sport utility vehicles...

most cost less, get better gas mileage, and make it easy for passengers to get in and out, and have a smoother, more car-like

The comparison should be in parallel. Moreover "and" is used in later part of the sentence, and have a smoother, more car-like. So there is no need to use before it.

So eliminate a, b and c. In D, usage of" it" is wrong.

So E is the answer

Kudos please, if you like my explanation.

My Bad. It should be E as there is already an and before in the statement and only one list of items will make sense !

here non underlined part will provide 3:2 split or rather answer..
we have two "and" in one list , in this case that makes answer choice wrong ..
so we can get rid of A,B,C...
between D and E
E is better than D....

IMO:

we have a list here ,and in the non underlined part we have already "and" to complete the list.All positive aspect in one list....two "and" are not required here .

cost less, get better gas mileage, and make it easy for passengers to get in and out, and have a smoother, more car-like ride.

"and" after" make " is violating the list ....So C is wrong.
