Unlike compares similar nouns and noun-phrases.

a) Unlike using spices for cooking, in medicinal usage they are taken

using spices for cooking
should be compared with
using spices for preparing medicines



b) Unlike spices that are used in cooking, in using spices for medicine, they are taken
Unlike spices
should be compared with
another spices or spice like things.


c) Unlike cooking with spices, taking spices for medicinal use is done
same as A.

d) In cooking, small quantities of spices are used, whereas in medicinal usage spices are taken
Parallel usage:
In cooking; in medicinal usage
spices are used; spices are taken
and "whereas" conveys the intended contrast properly.

Correct.

e) In cooking, the usage of spices is in small quantities, whereas in medicinal usage they are taken
Looks like usage is in small quantities and not the spices.

My question is:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
In D, how could "small quantities" and "spices" be parallel?


Even I have the same question :(

In D, how could "small quantities" and "spices" be parallel?

D has to be the correct answer. It is the only one which maintains proper parallelism. E is wordier.

Comparison is with the quantities of spice that is used in cooking and medicine. C doesn't given any information on quantity of spices used in cooking.

OA is D.

My take:
A.- out, unlike is for comparing nouns, not clauses
B.- out, compares spices with in using spices
C.- same as A
D.- u got it
E.- the usage is in small quantities sounds very bad; also they has no antecedent.

Everybody agree?

This helps a lot. I did not know that "unlike" had the same rules as "like". (Hopefully) Never making this mistake again.

Somebody please edit this question.

Unlike using spices for cooking, in medicinal usage they are taken in large quantities in order to treat particular maladies

a) Unlike using spices for cooking, in medicinal usage they are taken

b) Unlike spices that are used in cooking, in using spices for medicine, they are taken

c) Unlike cooking with spices, taking spices for medicinal use is done

d) In cooking, small quantities of spices are used, whereas in medicinal usage spices are taken

e) In cooking, the usage of spices is in small quantities,whereas in medicinal usage they are taken

Please post the question entirely. The option D) is missing "of " in the version which is posted and that is why I rejected the option D) .

I copied the version of the question from : http://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/forum ... t1062.html

My 2 cents --

Like/instead of - Used to compare nouns

As - Used to compare actions.

Since above statements represent actions, Like can't be used. A,B,C Out.

D/E - Avoid pronouns where ever necessary. Usage of 'Spices' is better than pronoun 'They'. So 'D'.

choice e literally says that the usage of spices is 'in small quantities', which is not the proper message. this could mean that you don't use spices very often, but, when you do, you dump 14 kilos of allspice and 12 kilos of paprika in your pan.

the sentence needs to convey the message that the spices are the things of which quantities are small. choice d conveys this message well.

one could say that d isn't 100% parallel, but it's definitely more parallel than the other choices: in cooking, (noun) is used (passive voice construction); in medicinal usage, (noun) are taken (passive voice construction).
