(A) and should have no writing in them or be underlined
"writing" and "underlined" are not parallel.

(B) and should not have writing in them or not be underlined
"writing" and "underlined" are not parallel.

(C) and contain no writing or underlining
Seems correct to me.

(D) without containing writing nor be underlined
Wrong "nor" cannot be used without "neither".

(E) without having any writing or no underlining in them
"without" applies to "no underlining" as well, so double negative cancels the logic.

So I will go with C.

I chose A because "should...and should...". Is the second "should" necessary? thanks!

I am still learning the concepts so not very sure. But here is my logic. Second "should" is not necessary. It acts as an ellipsis so it is assumed.

Textbooks for the used book sale should be in good condition and should have no writing in them or be underlined.

Should X and Y = Should X and Should Y
A) X= be in good condition
Y = have no writing in them or be underlined
Here be|| have parallel each other(both are in base form).
But Stement Y is incorrect writing and underlined are not parallel
If Y were "Should have no wiritng or underling in them" then It would be correct.

(B) and should not have writing in them or not be underlined
not || for the above reason.
(C) and contain no writing or underlining
Should X and Y =Should X and Should Y
X= be in good condition
Y =contain no writing or underlining
"be|| contain" and also "writing|| underlining"

(D) without containing writing nor be underlined
be not || containing
(E) without having any writing or no underlining in them
be not || having
