I'm not able to eliminate 3 and 5 option. Official reasoning in Princeton material for the question seems wrong.

Official Solution had this

Choice A: No. The list including having a poor diet and lacking exercise and environmental factors and genetics is not parallel. Explained… because of is redundant. Parallel construction. Redundancy.

Choice B: Correct.

Choice C: No. The verb occurring and the conjunction phrase and also are not parallel. Parallel construction.

Choice D: No. The verb occurs and the conjunction phrase and also are not parallel. Parallel construction. +Change of Meaning (Diet Not same as poor diet)

Choice E: No. The verb occurs, the list including having a poor diet and lacking exercise and environmental factors and genetics, and the conjunction phrase and also are not parallel. Parallel construction.

In 3&5, I couldn't find out parallelism issue
