The argument that the dominant form of family structure today is not the nuclear family, but rather it is a family which is modified and extended, is based on a number of facts: the existence of three-generational families, the amount of vertical and horizontal communication between family subunits, and the extent to which family members offer assistance to one another.


(A) family, but rather it is a family which is modified and extended, is based on a number of facts: the existence of three-generational families
(B) family, but is instead a family that is modified and extended, is based on a number of facts: three-generational families exist
(C) family, which has been modified and extended, is based on a number of facts: the existence of three-generational families
(D) family but a modified extended family is based on a number of facts: the existence of three-generational families
(E) family, but also a modified and extended family, is based on a number of facts: three-generational families exist

instead of does not fit well
(C) family, which has been modified and extended, is based on a number of facts: the existence of three-generational families

It should be D.

Structure + Parallelism

- Structure 'Not X but Y' is correctly used.
- 'the existence of three-generational families' , 'the amount of vertical and horizontal communication between family subunits', and 'the extent to which family members offer assistance to one another' are parallel.
