well, this is surely B,

A is faulty cause the 4th element ends with a verb
C this alternative is very parallell indeed, but we only need the
in which in the beginning of the list.
D,E no need for where

C. Only C maintains the llism. B is run-on sentence.

I reasoned the same as you did, Macca, but let's wait for the OA and a better explanation!

OA is C

"in which" is part of a prepositional phrase. If we start the parallelism after "in which" we are using parallel fragments. Also without â€œin whichâ€

damn, I would have gone with B too!

How is "in which" used correctly here?
