C. loom, which used the power of water to perform the shedding, picking, and battening actions of weaving, and made possible all usage of spun threads so that they increased

Error in C :
- "which used the power of water to perform the shedding, picking, and battening actions of weaving" acts as a modifier of power loom.
- Then we have "and made" that doesn't have any verb before AND.

I think this is a very good question for testing of parallelism and meaning.

two list of parallelism here. [.. using the power of water] to perform and to make.
2nd is quiet easy the example of what to perform.

A. loom, with using the power to perform the shedding, picking, and battening actions of weaving and it made possible all use of spun threads so as to increase --- after 'and' "it made" is not parallel to anything. more over it is not referring to anything sensible.

B. loom, with using the power of water to perform the shedding, picking, and battening actions of weaving, and with making the usage of all spun threads possible to prevent ---- 'with using' and 'with making' are parallel. btw where is main verb??

C. loom, which used the power of water to perform the shedding, picking, and battening actions of weaving, and made possible all usage of spun threads so that they increased --- so loom is used to perform all this. in that case loom is "made possible" all this. meaning error.

D. loom used the power of water to perform the shedding, picking, and battening actions of weaving, and to make the usage of all spun threads possible to increase ---- right parallelism.

E. loom used the power of water to perform the shedding, picking, and battening actions of weaving and making all possible spun threads usable so that it increased --- no parallel structure.
