POE results in A and E left. A breaks //ism: "They can protect X while assessing Y, helping to do Z, and supporting W". Simply not //, whereas E: "They can protect X and assist Y, helping to do Z, and support W". It´s a bit odd but proper, nevertheless.

It´s E in my view.

I think A is correct

it seems to me that "assessing..., helping..., and supporting..." are all present participles (adjectives) and ll each other.

Any othe thoughts?

Not parallel to "can protect"

B. while also assessing the business concerns for a deal, as well as helping the development of an integrated business plan, and to support the

C. and assess the rationale of a deal from a business perspective, help the development of an integrated business plan, and supporting relevant


D. while facilitating the assessment of a business rationale of a deal, help to develop a business plan of integration, and supporting the
E. and assist the assessment of the deal’s business rationale, helping to develop an integrated plan for the business, and support
helping to develop is right here because the assessment helps developing the plan.

A for me.

A. while assessing the business rationale of a deal, helping to develop an integrated business plan, and supporting

B. while also assessing the business concerns for a deal, as well as helping the development of an integrated business plan, and to support the – use of also is excessive.

C. and assess the rationale of a deal from a business perspective, (to) help the development of an integrated business plan, and supporting relevant – help requires ‘to’ in infinitive form.

D. while facilitating the assessment of a business rationale of a deal, help to develop a business plan of integration, and supporting the – Parallelism issues – facilitating the; help a; supporting the

E. and assist (in) the assessment of the deal’s business rationale, helping to develop an integrated plan for the business, and support – assist (in) the assessment of the deal’s business rationale.

"Unbiased third-pary 'clean' teams" can do two things: (A) protect and (B) assist.

I am still not clear why E is wrong here, we can see E as below,

Unbiased third-party "clean" teams can protect sensitive data and assist the assessment of the deal's business rationale, helping to develop an integrated plan for the business, and support negotiations.

here clean teams can protect and assist (parallel verbs) ; helping to develop and support (parallel verbs); Please help me understand how to spot such errors further.

The original sentence begins with a simple present tense statement, “clean teams can protect sensitive
data” that is followed by three verb phrases that are logically parallel in the sentence, and so should
be structurally parallel as well. The sentence maintains a parallel construction, using the “-ing” form of
each verb (assessing, helping, supporting). Finally, the sentence is clear and concise.

(A) CORRECT. The first choice is correct as it repeats the original sentence.

(B) This sentence unnecessarily introduces the connecting phrases “while also” and “as well as”; these
phrases are wordy, not grammatically required, and do not improve the clarity of the sentence. The
concluding phrase “to support the negotiations” is not parallel with the earlier verb phrases, and
incorrectly uses the article “the,” which is unclear given that negotiations were not referenced earlier.

(C) The conjunction “and” joins the first verb phrase with the original statement, which
changes the original meaning of the sentence; the correct "while" indicating that the
teams can protect sensitive data even while using it. The first and second verb phrases use the
simple present tense (“assess" and "help"). However, the last phrase “and supporting relevant
negotiations” completely breaks the parallelism and is thus incorrect. Also, this choice is unnecessarily
wordy in two ways: It uses the phrase “the rationale of a deal from a business perspective” as
opposed to “business rationale” in earlier choices, and it introduces the word “relevant” which adds no
meaning, as clearly only relevant negotiations are to be supported.

(D) The second verb phrase, “help to develop a business plan of integration” is structurally not parallel
to the equivalent phrases that begin with "facilitating" and "supporting." Also, that phrase is wordier
without making the meaning clearer. In addition, this choice incorrectly uses the article “the,” which is
unclear given that negotiations were not referenced earlier. Finally, this choice is unnecessarily wordy
in its use of “facilitating the assessment” in place of simply “assessing.”

(E) Here, “helping to develop an integrated plan for the business” is not parallel to "assist" and
"support," as it must be. Also, the first verb phrase is awkward in its use of “assist the assessment”
and “the deal’s business rationale” where no particular deal is being discussed.
