Parallelism:
endure X, avoid Y, contend Z, and perhaps ward off T
Only C is correct.

Travelers to Mars would have to endure low levels of gravity for long periods of time, avoid large doses of radiation, contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even having to ward off contamination by Martian life-forms.


(A) contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even having to ward
(B) contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even warding
(C) contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even ward ==> CORRECT
(D) contending with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even to ward
(E) contending with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even warding

Hope it's clear.

let's keep it simple. A verb ||-ism is tested. So all the verbs have to ||. Which is observed only in C

Travelers to mars would have to 'endure', ' avoid', 'contend' and 'ward'

Only C fits in.

Travelers to Mars would have to endure low levels of gravity for long periods of time, avoid large doses of radiation, contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even having to ward off contamination by Martian life-forms.

Issue: Parallelism

Analysis: This is a straightforward parallelism question that requires all the verbs in the sentence to be in infinitive forms (since two non-underlined actions are already in infinitive form)

I have highlighted the issues in option below

(A) contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even having to ward
(B) contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even warding
(C) contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even ward
(D) contending with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even to ward
(E) contending with the chemically reactive Martian soil, and perhaps even warding

Answer: (C)

The problem with this sentence is mainly with Parallelism.
This sentence provides a "list of things". i.e. — to endure , ( to ) avoid , ( to ) contend , ( to ) ward off must be parallel.
