E is the correct answer choice since all parts in the list are nouns and thus have a parallel structure.

Hi can someone explain why D is correct.
Although it is right to use From....to construction. but is it okay to have more than one "to".

Doesn't E appear to be the correct answer? How can D be correct? There is no parallelism in D.

Can someone post the OE?

My two cents.

'E' is wrong because of the comma "+ and" construction

Usage of ", + and"

He likes A, B, and C. --> A, B, C should be parallel.
He likes A, and he wants B. --> A and B should be independent clauses.

For these reasons, E is wrong...

The benefits of having many trees on one's property ranges from insulation and energy conservation in summer and winter, to cleaner air, and increases in property value.

The construction is prep. phrase + prep. phrase + noun phrase ??

I believe the answer is D because the format of the sentence is "The benefits range from ... x, to y, to z."

I think E would have been a more viable choice if the comma was not there. If the comma wasn't there, I would have thought the structure to be "The benefits range from....x and y, to a and b". However, because the comma is there, it doesn't sound right (sorry, for lack of a better reason) to say "The benefits range from x, to y, and z". The "...and z" makes it seem not as parallel.

Anyone else have thoughts on D?

Typical sentence structure: ... from A, B, and C, to D, E, and F.

Would it make sense to say: from A, from, B, and from C, to D, to E, and to F?
Well, not at all in my opinion.

I believe there is a mistake in the answer to this question.

Dear Experts,

Please Explain why option D is better choice than E :|


D does not seem to be better than E. The correct structure is ranges from [A and B] to [C and D],not ranges from [A and B] to C, to D.
Moreover the comma after summer and winter does not seem to be correct. In from X to Y structure a comma is not used after X.

Answer D

We can use from… to…, to…
…constructions that range from houses to sport facilities, to palaces

The sentence mentions 3 benefits. Let’s rewrite it as a list:
The benefits of having many trees on one's property are insulation and energy conservation in summer and winter , cleaner the air, and increases property value.

Now we change it using the idiom from… to..., to

The comma in E makes this answer wrong.

sayantanc2k bro,

Your more inputs required here. I also believe range from X,to Y,to Z is wrong. There should be at least one 'and' but it seems OA and OE are not clear. Please help.

I have already expressed my opinion in this thread:

Nonetheless I do also agree that the comma in E is problematic.

So, are we saying OA mentioned in not correct and HAD there not been 'that' comma in E, E would have been a better answer choice?
