A. that perform lower-level tasks but also are providing ==> that can't be used for employees
B. performing lower-level tasks but also providing==> could be enhanced
C. who perform lower-level tasks, but are also providing ==>perform/are also providing are not paralel
D. that performs lower-level tasks but also provide ==> Subject verb disagreement / that can't be used for employees
E. who perform lower-level tasks but also provide ==> best answer


E is the correct answer

That can't be used to refer to people so A&D are eliminated

C & E left "perform" and "provide" should be parallel so C is eliminated and E is the correct answer

As for B, I'm not really sure what is the difference in meaning between "who perform" and "Performing"? They are both modifying "employees" but what is the difference in meaning?

If I may guess I would say "performing" maybe related to cause and effect, so the "employees" themselves are the cause for "performing" which might sound very illogical ...however, "who perform" modify the employees as the doer... would appreciate some clarifications here :)
