A. in theater-goers, by turns enchanted by her child-like charm, frustrated by her docility and her impressive resolve --- The three items of the list are not parallel

B. with theater-goers, who are by turns enchanted by her child-like charm, frustrated by her docility, and by her impressive resolve --- same parallelism problem as in A, besides being wordy

C. in theater-goers, by turns finding her child-like charm enchanting, her docility frustrating and her resolve impressing ---- though technically correct, the phrase ‘her resolve impressing’, is not the same as her resolve impressive , since the word impressing requires a direct object to act on.

D. to theater-goers, by turns enchanted by her charm, frustrated with her docility and impressed by her resolve ---- to theatre goers is wrong; also ‘child-like’ is missing.
E. in theater-goers, by turns enchanted by her child-like charm, frustrated with her docility, and impressed by her resolve --- This is the best choice

Hi Dagh
Thanks for the notes. Answer Choice E was a bit irritating because it uses "and" at the end of the sentence even though the preceding clause is not independent. Is that correct?

We have to call it child- like; we cannot call it childish, then it will turn negative. Juvenile also is inappropriate since it includes young animals. So child-like is ok I feel.

Reto
Hi
Why do you think ‘and’ should be followed or preceded by independent clauses only? In principle, 'and' joins two independent clauses or two phrases or two words; the only stipulation is that they should be equal in form and meaning. Similarly ‘and’ is a must before the last item of a parallel list.

E. in theater-goers, by turns enchanted by her child-like charm, frustrated with her docility, and impressed by her resolve – Here the three parallel items in the list are 1. enchanted 2. frustrated and 3. impressed , which are all particples.

Please look into this link for a better picture of the word
