Time needed: 40s

POE:
1) The subject is "The steps". We can eliminate A, B and E since "is" must refer to a singular subject.
2) We are left with answers C and D: notice that in C the list isn't parallel for the highlighted reasons. -> Eliminate C.

Correct answer: D

(A) is in the molding and smoothing of the shape, and in the decoration -Incorrect
(B) is the molding and smoothing of the shape, and also the decorating - Incorrect
(C) are the molding, smoothing of the shape, and in the decorating - Parallelism error - Incorrect
(D) are the molding and smoothing of the shape, and the decoration - Correct

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question involves parallel structure and agreement between subject and verb. Because we have the word ‘steps’, we need to use the plural. That means that choices A, B and E are wrong. Choice C is incorrect as it is missing a word between ‘molding’ and ‘smoothing’. The best answer is D.
