Usage of verbs in sentence with parallelism  [#permalink]

I have been preparing for GMAT over the past few weeks and I a doubt wrt to the concepts.
It would be really helpful if someone can help me out.

The usage of the conjugated verbs :

When is it specifically required to mention the main verb again within the sentence.

Instance 1
He has frequently defaced public property and gone to jail.(Here, I see that there is no need to mention the verb prior to gone,as "has" is implied for gone too)

Instance 2:
The species is only distantly related to the giant panda and is more closely related to weasels & racoons. ( The verb "is" is repeated twice , which is still fine)
If I try to rephrase the sentence to the following is it grammatically still right ?
The species is only distantly related to the giant panda and more closely related to weasels & racoons.
If the rephrased statement isn't right ,can someone tell me how is to be re written so that the verb (is) is only used once.

Also please cite examples about the usage of verbs where parallelism exists.

I suggest you read SC Aristotle. it describes these concepts in much detail and in very easy language. Plus it has examples for all the cases.

Hi Hareesh2992,

If you have manhattanrep textbook, refer to parallelism chapter. In 5th edition, it chapter # 11. I have attached the photo of explanation. It is the same for the examples you've mentioned:

Correct: Noun has verb1, has verb2, and has verb 3
Correct: Noun has verb1, verb2, and verb 3
Incorrect: Noun has verb1, verb2, and has verb 3 (verb 2 is without has)

Hopeit helps!
