While some propose to combat widespread illegal
copying of computer programs by attempting to
change people's attitudes toward pirating, others by
suggesting reducing software prices to decrease the
incentive for pirating, and still others by calling
for
the prosecution of those who copy software illegally.

Look at the first 3 words (While some propose... others suggest) (should be the parallel word). With that in mind, you eliminate A and B.

The word that is parallel with attempting is reducing. Hence C and D is eliminated. SO E IS THE BEST ANSWER
(C) suggest the reduction of software prices for
decreasing the incentive for pirating, and still
others call
(D) suggest the reduction of software prices to
decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others
by calling
(E) suggest reducing software prices to decrease the
incentive for pirating, and still others are calling

(A) by suggesting reducing software prices to
decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others
by calling
(B) by suggesting the reduction of software prices to
decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others
call
(C) suggest the reduction of software prices for
decreasing the incentive for pirating, and still
others call
(D) suggest the reduction of software prices to
decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others
by calling
(E) suggest reducing software prices to decrease the
incentive for pirating, and still others are calling - CORRECT

I THINK THE PARALLEL STRUCTURE SHOULD BE CONSISTENT WITH 'PROPOSE' RATHER THAN 'BY ATTEMPTING..'
IMO E
