The new Alvin Ailey Center will be devoted to the performance and analysis of Ailey's work: classic interpretations of the routines, integration of his works with that of other famed choreographers, programs that foster discussion about the role of dance and movement in society, mixed media performances combining choreography with other forms of art, music, painting, and sculpture.

A. that of other famed choreographers, programs that foster discussion about the role of dance and movement in society, mixed media performances combining choreography with other forms of art, music, painting, and sculpture.

B. those of other famed choreographers, programs that foster discussion about the role of dance and movement in society, and mixed media performances combining choreography with other forms of art, music, painting, and sculpture.

C. those of other famed choreographers, programs that foster discussion about the role of dance and movement in society, mixed media performances combining choreography with other forms of art, including music, painting, and sculpture.

D. those of other famed choreographers, programs that foster discussion about the role of dance and movement in society, and mixed media performances combining choreography with other forms of art, including music, painting, and sculpture.

E. those of other famed choreographers, programs that foster discussion about the role of dance and movement in society, mixed media performances combining choreography with other forms of art, including music, painting, and sculpture.

This problem focuses on lists and modifiers.
The original sentence distracts you immediately with the distinction between "that" and "those;" while that can be a decision point here, the problem is more easily solved by focusing on the correct completion of the lists and modifiers.
The first list articulates the items that the Ailey Center will provide: interpretations, integrations, programs and mixed media performances. Answer choices (A), (C) and (E) omit the word "and" before mixed media performances. While there is another "and" in the sentence, it is required in the second list of the other types of art.
The second list is the other types of art: music, painting and sculpture. Answer choices (A) and (B) omit the word, "including" prior to the list of the other types of art, making it appear as though the mixed media performances will integrate with other types of art, AND with music, painting and sculpture. This is a combination of illogical and redundant. The other forms of art ARE music, painting, and sculpture, making it a bit redundant. And as far as logic, choreography is not a type of painting or sculpture, for example, so it's illogical to say mixing choreography with other forms of painting or sculpture.

Only answer choice (D) correctly completes the original list and completes the secondary list used to modify the other types of art.

Options C and E are identical.
Please can you correctly modify the options so that two options are not exactly the same.
Thank you.

THIS IS A POOR QUALITY QUESTION BY VERITAS. 2 ISSUES IN THE PROMPT AND ANSWER CHOICE:
1. There should be an "and" before Integration of his works as it marks the end of the first list.
2. In the supposedly correct answer choice, there is an issue of a non-parallel structure- Programs that foster blah blah........ and mixed media performances combining blah blah.....

Can any of the experts please validate the above mentioned points?
