yeahhh... I remeber this one. I took D because it seemed to be the most ||. But E is the answer. Can anyone provide a clear explanation?

D assumes that the parents are already disciplining daughters .. but the 'sense' of the sentence talks about a hypothetical situation about how those same parents who have male children 'would' treat daughters if they were to have them.

give you points for imagination, but your explanation makes little sense.

whats the relationship between the hypothetical situation and
"would" ?

Popular child psychologists have advocated that parents discipline male children similarly to the fashion in which they discipline daughters
A)
B)in the same manner that they would use with
C) like they would handle
D) as they discipline
E) as they would

A, B,C are definitely out - I am interested in discussion between options D and E

(E)? for correct meaning
parents discipline male children as they would (discipline) daughters.

because they(parents) may or may not have daughter. More like hypothetical situation.

(D) cant be correct because it conveys that Parents have daughter.

CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG.

I also go for E as I believe ellipsis applies here.

(E) for me.
(D) sounds like they are disciplining boys at the same time as they discipline girls.

^ E ^

D seems to be ||, however, "as" seems ambigious there. It may mean "while" as well. So, I choose E.

E. Subjunctive mood again, but it does NOT sound good without the word 'discipline'!

"advocated that" x to y as x to z

parents (x) discipline (to) make children (y)

as

they (x) would (to) daughters (z)....E, though I think it should be "as they would discipline" daughters.

D implies that parents discipline male children while ie, at the same time, they discipline daughters.

My answer is E. While D is close, discipline is not required to be repeated again in this case. It is implied in E.

"Look for clarity and brevity. (E), is best: none of the other, longer choices is any clearer. .......... (D) changes the sentence's meaning.

I picked (E) too. I don't see how (D) changes the sentence's meaning. Anyone?

Hmm, maybe because "as" can be used instead of "because" and that would change the meaning to something like discipline your male children because you know you discipline your daughters.
