==> E

Either it should be "encouraged" parallel to "imparted"

in ans choice D imparting doesnot match to engouraged. So i think D should not be a correct ans.

For me its D..

In E: "students encouraging them" means students encourage them, not Howard encourages them.

hope this will help!

MR OA is E, they talked about parallelism -ing in E. I also thought about D in first place and not convinced with E yet...

when he could no longer play violin himself, Howard taught, imparted his knowledge to students to encourage them to be as successful as he once was.
a. imparted his knowledge to students to encourage -- wrong parallelism between taught and imparted;to encourage is wrong usage too.POE
b. and he imparted his knowledge to students and encouraged -- taught,imparted and encouraged are made separate actions.However,imparted and encouraged are dependent upon taught. POE.
c. and imparting his knowledge to students encouraged -- and usage is unnecessary;wrong parallelism between encouraged and taught. POE
d. imparting his knowledge to students and encouraged -- wrong parallelism between encourage and taught.POE
e. imparting his knowledge to students encouraging -- imparting and encouraging are dependent results upon taught. More so,verb+ing indicates these actions happened at the same time as 'taught'.Correct usage.

kindly specify the source because STUDENTS ENCOURAGING THEM is ambiguous, thus d most likely option too is not very clear.
Experts, request throw some light..

E in my opinion isnt right, and other choices also aren't convincing.
Please dont post anything on verbal without mentioning the source.
A very poor question.

the answer should be E. the imparting and encouraging actually tells us what he did during his teaching. it is more like a modifier rather than a parallel structure.
that is, he taught, imparting and encouraging rather than he taught, imparted and encouraged....

Agreed. The answer just seems to be missing the word "and" between "imparting" and "encouraging." I'm assuming that was just a mistake.

I find this question incomplete and Repulsive . :) IMO - No answer . but will go for A because it is the only one which is capable of completing the sentence.

The parallelism is present only in answer choice E- imparting his knowledge to students and encouraging

Yes, the sentence makes complete sense. The latter half of the sentence "imparting his knowledge to students and encouraging" is actually a Verb-ing Modifier which is meant to modify the entire clause "He taught".

You could refer the below article for a better understanding on modifiers

d. imparting his knowledge to students and encouraged
e. imparting his knowledge to students and encouraging

+kudos if you got it wrong .

Help required. Why i find this question put in a bad format.
I can't find parallelism here nor i can find it complete.


If I consider imparting knowledge and encouraging students as modifiers of Howard taught, option E seems correct.
However, consider this structure: Howard taught, imparting his knowledge to students and encouraged students... Here taught and encouraged should be parallel as in option D.
Is option D wrong because there is no comma after students? If there was a comma after students, would encouraged be considered parallel with taught?

Experts - Kindly comment if my understanding is correct. I faced a similar issue with another question. Any help here would be highly appreciated.

I believe so. You would need a comma after students so that 'and' can join two verbs in the sentence.
