languages are usually "originated" so that's how i eliminated A,D,E. its the showdown between B & C and if I read my Manhattan GMAT book correctly, that should be used to describe language variations. but hey, I mite be wrong so bsd, if u dont mind mate, the OA if we may? (drum sounds)

This is a positive D.

This problem is similar to the Time Zones problem if you guys remember it.

Well - between B and D, D is actually parallel because of the correct usage in D of participles (originating and perpetuated) even though they are structurally dissimilar.

if we were to use the structure of B -

variations that originated from should be paralleled by and that were perpetuated by.... then it would have been parallel.

Alternatively D uses

Variations ORIGINATING from (originating acts as an adjective modifying Variations) and perpetuated by (again perpetuated acts as an adjective modifying variatons).
