Confused with the OA
Although when viewing from Parallelism side A fits in best
But it doesn't give intended meaning.
Psychological studies have found that children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, inattentive, and unable to sit still for very long.
or we can write this as

Psychological studies have found that children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, are difficult to inattentive, and are difficult to unable to sit still for very long.

Experts please help if there is something I am missing

As I have learnt that sometimes we need to repeat the VERB if the sequential list going too far from the SUBJECT as in this question.
But, When does that SOMETIMES come--- NO idea.. :(

Experts,
Can you please tell... what the point of reasoning in eliminating B..??

Hi,
this Q is correct in parallelism and meaning too..
lets see what are the parallel items here.
that children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are
a)difficult to teach,
b)inattentive,
c)and unable to sit still for very long...

so the sentence may read as..
that children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, are inattentive, and are unable to sit still for very long...
and it is perfectly fine the way it is...
all three tell us about the children affected by ADD and , therefore are parallel and logical

We can use ‘to’ for
1. Infinitives ---- to+ verb (to attend, to teach)
2. prepositional phrases -- to + noun ( to Delhi, to the school) But can we use to for adjectives, such as ---difficult to inattentive, and are difficult to unable to sit? No. This is not permissible.

Prakhar

B will effectively mean:
that children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, are inattentive, and are are unable to; see the double are after and. As per the tenets of //ism, you can use ‘are’ for the first one and skip for the other two or use ‘are’ for all the three each. B is selectively missing the ‘are’ only for the middle one and therefore, incorrect.

studies found that - that is required , rule out C & D - Studies were not conducted to find children.
Among A , B and E - are - || structure required mentioning characteristics - difficult to teach , are inattentive and are unable to sit still for very long.
A is correct , Both B and E have list with parallel element not similar construct issue.

Psychological studies have found that children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, inattentive, and unable to sit still for very long.

(A) that children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, inattentive, and - all looks good to me!
(B) that children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, inattentive, and are - "difficult", "inattentive" and "are unable" are not parallel
(C) children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, inattentive, and they are - again, parallelism
(D) children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, and inattentive, and they are - parallelism!
(E) that children who are afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are difficult to teach, they are inattentive, and are - parallelism!

Really easy one if you quickly realise that there is parallelism going on.
