I am 99.9% sure this is D... what the heck... 100%

plans "REQURE"... gerund "requiring" can't replace the verb, so A and B are out

C... plans can't spend time with each patient

E is 100% not parallel

I'm sorry for posting the OA too soon.
OA =(E) "that impose stricter limits on medical services and require doctors to see more patients, and spending "

This is from Matt's verbal challenge question set. Gosh !! I'm still wondering how this can be the right answer !! If any of you can explain that would really help this poor soul.

I think "E" is the right answer. Plans impose not "imposing" since this will happen in future being a consequence in future it shud be accompanied by "That" and followed by impose "Verb" and then plan "require" not "requiring" both will be || since have individual effect and spending for mutual effect!

bhalla.sumant - I'm sorry buddy but your explanation didn't answer "and spending" part. Can you try one more time ?

I am sorry, but I definitely can't believe that E is the answer... it can't be

in addition to ||sm, comma before AND has no business -> we put comma before and when we introduce another independent clause and gerund SPENDING can't replace a verb.

my 2 cents and I am staying with D

please check the source and the correct answer!

Dude, double check your sources before jumping to conclusions.

The OA for this has always been (D). I even PM'd you about this earlier this morning

The source of this SC is still unknown. Dahiya was the first to decipher it. I'll try to find the original thread...

E) that impose stricter limits on medical services and require doctors to see more patients, and spending

I was leaning toward A more for ||.
plans imposing ~ and requiring doctors to see ~, and spend ~

The comma at the end bothered me though...

Hey U2lover, I have 2 questions for U.

1. Answer D has "requiring" not "Require". I don't understand your explanation about gerund.
2. What's spending time with Patients? Services or Doctor?

1) plans "REQUIRING" is a Gerund is NOT A VERB thus can't replace one... however, it can be used as a verb with conjugated TO BE + GERUND= VERB

u2lovergirl IS STUDYING for GMAT

2) plans impose limit by requiring X to do Y and [by] spending time...
"BY" is not there, I just rephrased that to help you uderstand what it's saying

Thanks for the quick reply.
I still don't see what's 'spending less time with each'? I feel that it should be:

D) that impose stricter limits on medical services, requiring doctors to see more patients and spend
