I knew it was between A and D, and I chose A for the reason that "is" will be applied to "(is) betting its stock" too

I mean: who is a rare critic and (is) betting its stock will fall...

Example: we say - "Ronaldo kicked the ball and the player."

"kicked" applies to both and there is no need to repeat it. I applied it in a similar way above.

Request you to please help me on this question.


since AND is parallelism marker...we need parallel thing on both sides.

"Ronaldo kicked the ball and the player."
here parallel thing
"Ronaldo kicked
the ball
and
the player."
here both 2 things ARE NOUN and parallel. (THE BALL....THE PLAYER)

===
option A
who is
a rare critic of the company
and
betting its stock will fall

HERE : a rare critic of the company ==>noun phrase
betting its stock will fall ===>starting with a participle and not a noun.
hence THEY are not parallel.

===
now in correct option:

who
is a rare critic of the company
and
is betting its stock will fall

now both sides of AND is verb phrase ...so it is parallel.

similar case

to (verb1 ...and verb2) ==>this is parallel..because both sides we are making verbs parallel although TO is understood.
to verb 1 and TO verb 2 ==>in this we are making infinitives parallel.

HOPE IT HELPS.
