A seemingly insatiable demand for luxury apartments in New York, created in large part by wealthy Europeans, have caused land prices to soar and made affordable housing projects nearly impossible in Manhattan

"created in large part by wealthy Europeans, have caused land prices to soar and made" is underlined

A created in large part by wealthy Europeans, have caused land prices to soar and made

B has been created in large part by wealthy Europeans, caused land prices to soar, and made

C the creation of which is in large part due to wealthy Europeans, have caused land prices to soar and made

D created in large part by wealthy Europeans, has caused land prices to soar, making

E in large part created by wealthy Europeans, causing land prices to soar and making

QUESTION ID: 09054
SHOW SOLUTION

The answer provided is (D) but my question is why would (B) be wrong? "Has been" works to specify tense then according to parallel structure - created/caused/made -

vs

In (D) - "making" breaks the parallel structure

GMAT is in the end not a memory test as we know.
