I think E is the right option, which represents parallelism correctly
X,Y and Z

C is close, but fails as an answer when you read "are the cause of much more"
Which is clearly represented in E

Would say the pronoun "they" makes unclear which entity expected. Is it weather condition? is it winds? storms? --> go for B

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This sentence simply has to have its parallel structure corrected. It begins in the present tense, ‘are usually reliable’, so the sentence should continue in the present. Choice A is not in the present tense. ‘They’ in A, C, D and E is a pronoun without a reference. Choice B is the correct answer.
