Some patients who do not respond to therapies for depression may simply have received inadequate treatment, having, for example, been prescribed a drug at a dosage too low to be effective or having been taken off a drug too soon.

A. having, for example, been prescribed a drug at a dosage too low to be effective or having been
B. having, for example, a drug prescription that was ineffective because the dosage was too low, or being
C. as, for example, having too low of a dosage of a prescribed drug for it to be effective, or being
D. when they have, for example, been prescribed too low a drug dosage to be effective, or were
E. for example, when they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been


A. having, for example, been prescribed a drug at a dosage too low to be effective or having been. Correct parallalism
B. having, for example, a drug prescription that was ineffective because the dosage was too low, or being. How can a drug prescription be ineffective? Also, 'being' is generally wrong on GMAT
C. as, for example, having too low of a dosage of a prescribed drug for it to be effective, or being as having X is not parallel with as having y. Also, 'being' is generally wrong on GMAT
D. when they have, for example, been prescribed too low a drug dosage to be effective, or were or preceeded by ',' must be followed by an independent sentence
E. for example, when they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been or preceeded by ',' must be followed by an independent sentence

A is the answer

The second part of the sentence is a modifier that is modifying the entire clause and not just inadequate treatment. So we definitely need a ing modifier

C D E out

Between A and B

Parallelism wins.

I think the question is testing verb tense as well:

Original sentence says 'may simply have received inadequate treatment' : this means that the patients are still receiving(or were receiving when the author wrote this statement) inadequate treatment for depression, and the sentence then goes on to give examples of the type of treatments they may have received. Therefore, the example must contain 'have been' to specify that the treatments were given before the author wrote this statement, and continued to the time the author wrote this statement.

There are 3 tenses in this statement and continuity must be maintained for clear structure. The answer then is clearly A

Please correct me if I am wrong.
