E. He listened and prayed. Present perfect tense is optional here but is not incorrect.

[quote="satsurfs"]The dying old priest lay in his bed, listening to his disciples recite sermons he wrote years earlier, and he prayed for salvation.

A) recite sermons he wrote years earlier, and he prayed - listening and prayed not parellel
B) reciting sermons he had written years earlier, and he was praying - "listening to disciples reciting" is wrong
C) reciting sermons he had written years earlier praying - same as B
D) who were reciting sermons he had written years earlier, and he was praying -too wordy
E) recite sermons he had written years earlier, and praying - no time mentioned, so use of past participial is correct, this construct is parallel (Correct)



Correct Answer: Option E

I have as question to SC gurus.
As far as I know the question source is expertsglobal
They marked it as easy within their scoring scale


Here the question has 45% of difficulty
However, according to the statistics 48% (01:01) correct 52% (01:12) wrong based on 122 sessions

doesn't it mean that the question is confusing and probably doesn't represent "real GMAT" style questions?
