A: Parallelism issue. Surgeries can't be parallel to simple gerund - Operating
B: Parallelism issue. "in" after and is causing parallelism issue.
E: No conjunction to join 2 parallel elements - surgeries and minute and critical operations. We need "and" here.

C/D: Not really sure here. Would request experts to chime in.

In this situation, I would pick C over D because "operations that are minute" is too wordy and GMAT would prefer an adjective "minute" over a clause (that are minute). (NOTE: I only did this because I couldn't decide between C and D).

B has clear parallelism issues.

I agree with your reasoning. Moreover logically "minute operations" include "micro surgeries" - thus separating them with "and" is incorrect.
(In case there is a technical difference between "minute operations" and "micro surgeries", GMAT would not expect the candidate the know the same and hence would not test on that aspect.)

Does'nt option C wrongly suggest "minute environments" when it says " in minute or critical micro environmmets" ......D seems more clear meaning wise though not very succinct

Do we need a comma (,) before 'and' to list two parallel elements? Option C does that but not option D. IMO D.

I like answer C. The only thing I’m not sure about is if that comma right before the underline affects anything. Otherwise, answer C is parallel and concise.

A. operating in critical micro environments, and minute operations.
B. operations in critical micro environments, and in minute operations.
C. and operations in minute or critical micro environments.
D. operations in critical micro environments, and operations that are minute.
E. minute and critical micro environments operations.

Isn't D the correct option?

C changes the what the question conveys
in question: ....such as micro surgeries, operating in critical micro evnvironment,and minute operations
C. and operations in minute or critical micro environments. ---> implies minute environments which is not present in the question

Can someone correct me if I'm wrong

OA seems to change the meaning. Kindly clarify why option D is incorrect?
