Official Solution:

Trend Global is a company that will give its staff a 10 per cent pay hike, allows scooter rides in campus and even a massage facility.

A. will give its staff a 10 per cent pay hike, allows scooter rides in campus and even a massage facility
B. gives its staff a 10 per cent pay hike, allows scooter rides in campus and even offers a massage facility
C. is giving its staff a 10 per cent pay hike in addition to allowing scooter rides in campus and is even offering a massage facility
D. gives its staff a 10 per cent pay hike, allow scooter rides in campus and even offer a massage facility
E. will give its staff a 10 per cent pay hike, allow scooter rides in campus and even offers a massage facility

In this sentence, three things need to be made parallel – pay hike, scooter rides and massage facility. B gets it right. A – 'give' is not parallel with 'allows' C – Too wordy. 'is giving' is not needed since it is not an action that is ongoing at the moment. D – 'gives' is not parallel with 'allow' E – 'give' and 'allow' are not parallel with 'offers'

Parallelism in : gives, allows and offers, since from is a company, we know that the sentence is in present tense.
Thus will is not required in the ans.
Only B provides all the 3 verbs in present form.

I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation. POOR QUALITY QUESTION

IN OPTION B " campus and even offers " is incorrect
CORRECT form is "campus,and even offers"
so that 3 things are parallel a , b , and c

OPTION B is Poor choice => a,b and c can never be parallel

This question needs improvement

kindly correct option B - although i got it incorrect due to missing comma after campus => others will not face this problem .
Let me know whether my thinking is incorrect.

Answer B, although parallel, has a different meaning to the original sentence.
The original sentence "will give" says that the company is intending to give their employees the pay hike sometime in the near future.
However, in B: "Trend Global is a company that gives" implies that it is a regularly occurring action, which is not the original intention of the sentence.

Meaning>Pure grammar in sentence correction and English in general, please edit the sentence accordingly.
