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'

Answer: B

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.
