Same Concept

Proponents of the theory of spontaneous generation argued that simple living organisms sprang to life not through a recognizable reproductive process but came to life independently from non living matter.
a.sprang to life not through a recognizable reproductive process but came to life
b.did not spring to life through a recognizable reproductive process and came to life
c.did not spring to life through a recognizable reproductive process but came to life
d.sprang to life not through a recognizable reproductive process but
e.did not spring to life through a recognizable system of reproduction but had come to life



It looks similar to problem 847 of 1000 SCs which is:

847. The voluminous personal papers of Thomas Alva Edison reveal that his inventions typically sprang to life not in a flash of inspiration but evolved slowly from previous works.

(B) sprang to life not in a flash of inspiration but were slowly evolved
(C) did not spring to life in a flash of inspiration but evolved slowly
(D) did not spring to life in a flash of inspiration but had slowly evolved
(E) did not spring to life in a flash of inspiration but they were slowly evolved

both questions are not closed, or have similar patterns even though the two questions test the parallel structure.
In the second question, C is the answer.
