The company is negotiating to sell its profitable credit card subsidiary, which it plans to use money from to acquire some of the mortgage-servicing operations that are being sold by troubled savings institutions.
(A) subsidiary, which it plans to use money from
(B) subsidiary, from which it plans to use money
(C) subsidiary, and it plans the use of money from that
(D) subsidiary and plans to use money from that sale
(E) subsidiary and plans the use of money from that sale

I think there is lack of ||ism in the seemingly correct answer.

Aren't we missing 'planning' in D??
I think even D is not ||.

IMO sentence should look like:

The company is negotiating to sell its profitable credit card subsidiary and planning to use money from that sale to acquire some of the mortgage-servicing operations that are being sold by troubled savings institutions.

Keep in mind that the "best" choice in GMAT may not be a "perfect" sentence.

This is known. But I wanted to know was whether the option D lack ||ism or not?

Agreed b14kumar. In "A" and "B" sentences, you would expect "A" and "B" to have the same form, but this is not so in this case.

You do come across a few oddities in GMAT!

You are right buddy. Sometimes we can come across such defects..

It should be better either "The company is negotiating to sell its profitable credit card subsidiary and planning"

or

"The company is negotiating to sell its profitable credit card subsidiary and it plans"

Why do you say that "it" is needed?

Because the money is obtained from the sale, not from the subsidiary itself.

Hope that helps.

I was leaning toward B but I read the sentence again and realized D is the right answer.
