Why is B wrong?? "and as" exactly provides a parallel structure in my opinion. The sentence starts with..into English as X, Y, Z, and AS W.

A is not wrong in my opinion.. but I really doubt this one would be a official gmat question ..

This a simple test of symmetrical and list parallelism

A. which is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, can be translated into English as "joining", "uniting", "union", "conjunction", and --- must be correct choice;
1. maintains symmetry by joining two sub-ordinate clauses started by’ which’ on either sides of the parallelism marker ‘and’
2. maintains list parallelism by omitting the ‘as’ --- before means


B. which is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, can be translated into English as "joining", "uniting", "union", "conjunction", and as --- and as mars the list parallelism; If you have to add ‘as’ before, means, then you have to add ‘ as’ before each of the other arms


C. derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, can be translated into English as "joining", "uniting", "union", "conjunction", and --- misses the symmetrical parallelism by using a subordinate clause on one side of” and “ and a past participial phrase on the other side

D. deriving from the Sanskrit root yuj, can be translated into English as "joining", "uniting", "union", "conjunction", and ---- misses the symmetrical parallelism by using a subordinate clause on one side of ‘and’ and a present participial phrase on the other side



E. which is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, can be translated into English as "joining", "uniting", as "union", "conjunction", and --- you can’t have ‘as’ for one or two arms only

But a comma before 'and' ("conjunction", and) is confusing, or is it necessary to make sure that nobody thinks that 'conjunction and means' are in pair?
