A. Washing machines and dishwashers are made for using far lesser water now than older models and, therefore, needs less soap - "using": Incorrect; "far lesser": Incorrect; "than older models": Violates parallelism by not repeating the verb; "needs": plural subjects "washing machine and dishwashers" need a plural "need"

B. Washing machines and dishwashers are being made to use far less water now than are the older models and, therefore, need lesser soap - "are being made": Passive voice not required here; "are the": Improper parallelism; "lesser soap": Wrong;

C. Washing machines or dishwashers is made to use far less water now than had been the older models and, therefore, needing less soap - "dishwashers": needs a plural "are" and not "is"; "had been the older models": Incorrect verb usage in parallel structure; "needing": Not required when we have "therefore"

D. Washing machines and dishwashers are made to use far less water now than was used by the older models and, therefore, need less soap

E. Washing machines and dishwashers are made to use far less water now than older models and, therefore, need less soap
- "than older models": Incorrect parallel structure, needs a verb such as "used"

Answer: D

A) machines and dishwashers ... needs (number error) - Incorrect
B) need lesser soap (wrong word, we need less - change of mening) - Incorrect
C) machines OR dishwashers (we need AND because or changes meaning) - Incorrect
D) this is correct but a little awkward because in first part machines are object of passive construction and in second part water is the object of passive construction. Correct
E) this is wrong variant because use of water now compares with older models - Incorrect

Pathetic comparison in D...very poor question..if 'less X than Y' is the structure for parallelism in comparison question, then water is compared with older models(???) In d...please use your discretion when posting such disputed question that will NEVER APPEAR ON THE GMAT
