Hello Verbal Experts,

The OA here is D. But, I am not convinced with it.

The idiom used here is X instead of Y, where X and Y both must be parallel.

Here in this option: to contribute $330 a year toward the cost of higher education, instead of the $7 per year required previously
X=$330 a year
Y=the $7 per year


Is the word 'the' before $7 creating a problem and violating parallelism?

Please let me know.

Thanks in advance! :-)




Hello SidJainGMAT,


I would be glad to help you out with this one. :-)


There is no parallelism issue in the correct answer choice.

X=$330 a year
Y=the $7 per year

Please note that both the entities are noun phrases. Usage of the article the before the second element does not violate the parallelism in any way.

The elements must have the same role in the sentence to qualify as grammatically parallel elements in the list. They need not be completely identical.


Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha
