A. grew up in Kenya as the eldest of a missionary couple’s six children, attended prep school in Namibia, and after college and medical school in Sweden, did - Incorrect - Parallelism error

B. has grown up in Kenya as the eldest of a missionary couple’s six children, has attended prep school in Namibia, and after college and medical school in Sweden, did - Incorrect - Parallelism error + there should have been a comma after 'and'

C. having grown up in Kenya as the eldest of a missionary couple’s six children, attended prep school in Namibia, and after college and medical school in Sweden, having done - Incorrect - Reason similar to option C and usage of having makes the sentence awkward.

D.growing up in Kenya as the eldest of a missionary couple’s six children, attending prep school in Namibia, and, after college and medical school in Sweden, doing - Correct - All elements are parallel. Comma is used correctly to separate the elements.

E. growing up in Kenya as the eldest of a missionary couple’s six children, attending prep school in Namibia, and, after college and medical school in Sweden, she did - Incorrect - Again the elements are not parallel.

Answer: D

D looks promising. The others have broken structures and parallelism errors.

There is a post on the same question (slightly different wording - using "Although" instead of "Though").

hi, I don't clearly understand what is wrong with A - what parallel elements does it break?
And for D;I understand that present continuous is parallel + comma placement --> but I wanted to know what corrections D made over A

Thank you :)

None of the explanations looks convincing to prefer D over A :-(
