In first look, I find it hard to understand whats going on here. Let me dissect in a normal pace.

Meaning & error Analysis:
Glacier and ice patch archaeologists face extreme challenges to find, document, and conserve artifacts
when melting ice fails to keep them
----undetected, >>>> till ice is not melted they were hidden, now exposed.
----shielding them from decay due to changing climatic conditions >>>>> ice is still shielding them from decay[wrong for sure, As I am not able to form write sentence. more over it should be starting with shielded.]
----safe from misappropriation. >>>> seems write. [when melting ice fails to keep them safe from misappropriation.]


Always use run-on sentences to find such parallelism errors. for now all shielding once are wrong.

C. shielded from decay due to changing climatic conditions, and safe --- correct choice.

D. shielded from decay due to changing climatic conditions, and saving them --- make the run on sentence . keep them saving them . too awkword to even consider correct.

E. shielded from decay because of changing climatic conditions, and safe ---- due to vs because of --- due to used to modify noun, because of for verb. ok this is not helpful. lets use caused by test replace due to with caused by if it make sense then due to else because of. I would go with Due to.

Glacier and ice patch archaeologists face extreme challenges to find, document, and conserve artifacts when melting ice fails to keep them undetected, shielding them from decay due to changing climatic conditions, and safe from misappropriation.

A. shielding them from decay due to changing climatic conditions, and safe

B. shielding them from decay because of changing climatic conditions, and saving them

C. shielded from decay due to changing climatic conditions, and safe

D. shielded from decay due to changing climatic conditions, and saving them

E. shielded from decay because of changing climatic conditions, and safe


Hello,

So In this question, I went with this method of thought. Melting ice keeps the artifacts undetected, how does it do it? By shielding it. So it is describing (modifying) the process in "Glacier and ice patch archaeologists face extreme challenges to find, document, and conserve artifacts when melting ice fails to keep them undetected" . I got the safe usage correct. But I don't understand how shielded keeps parallelism. Hope any expert gives an explanation. Also, does comma have a bearing on parallel structure over the verb-ing form?
