I'll go with B.
from travel, from expenses, and from the places.

location accommodations doesn't seem to make much sense. location and accommodation both convey the place where the crew stayed. Then, doesn't this usage redundant?

OA please?

Bunuel,

In option B , places and locations looks to be redundant.
Will you pls suggest how it is correct and why option D is wrong.

Why not E ?

Parallel structure list :

carbon footprint” from 1) production-related travel, 2) clerical and office expenses, and 3) location accommodations for the cast and crew

"accommodating" in E disturbs the parallel listing.

Hope this helps!!

Hi,

Got me puzzled. I agree from extends over all the three items in the list but wouldnt D fit in the parallel structure in a better way?

How can B be the OA. How can a clause in the underlined portion be parallel to phrases in the non underlined part???

Although the official answer has been given as A, I find D to be the most suitable answer.

Can someone explain why option A is better than option D?
