out of option b and c
i will choose the option B because promising is the word that is missing in option c and if neglected will alter the meaning of the sentence

I picked E over C. The only problem with option C is "can" whereas the original meaning of the sentence is "may".

I think the answer is option B.

Option C says "by doing A and by doing B" while option B says "by doing A and doing B"

Since the two events are linked in OP, it means we need to try preserve the same meaning in the options. Hence option B is the best imho.

Please let me know if my reasoning is correct or not! THank you.

by public demonstration of the strength of its banks and promising to solidify those that prove weak, Europe might help stem the crisis of confidence.
Error : Parallelism by X and Y , X = demonstration of the strenght Y = promising to solidify

by publicly demonstrating the strength of its banks and promising to solidify those that prove weak, Europe might help stem the crisis of confidence.
Seems fine hold it : , Parallelism X= demonstrating , Y = promising correct

Europe can help stem the crisis of confidence by publicly demonstrating the strength of its banks and by solidifying those that prove weak.
Error : Can changes the meaning of the sentence

by public demonstration of the strength of its banks and by making a promise to solidify those that prove weak in public, Europe might help stem the crisis of confidence.
Error : meaning change

Europe may help stem the crisis of confidence by publicly demonstrating the strength of its banks and promise solidifying those that prove weak.
Error : parallelism error again

According to Ron, (I saw this in his parallelism video) both "by doing A and by doing B" and "by doing A and doing B" are correct.

For me, choice B appears convincing. It retains the original meaning & maintains parallelism by saying that by publicly demonstrating the strength of its banks and promising to solidify those that prove weak, Europe might help stem the crisis of confidence.
