Zeno's paradoxes are a set of problems generally thought to have been devised by Zeno of Elea to support Parmenide‘s doctrine that "all is one" and that, contrary to the evidence of our senses, the belief in plurality and change is mistaken, and in particular that motion is nothing but an illusion.

A. by Zeno of Elea to support Parmenide‘s doctrine that "all is one" and that, contrary to the evidence of our senses, the belief in plurality and change is mistaken, and in particular that motion
B. from Zeno of Elea to support Parmenide‘s doctrine that "all is one" and contrary to the evidence of our senses, the belief in plurality and change is mistaken, and in particular that motion
C. by Zeno of Elea supporting Parmenide‘s doctrine that "all is one" and that, contrary to the evidence of our senses, the belief in plurality and change was mistaken, and in particular motion
D. of Zeno of Elea in an attempt to support Parmenide‘s doctrine that "all is one" and that, despite our senses giving evidence to the contrary, the belief in plurality and change is mistaken, and in particular that motion
E. by Zeno of Elea for supporting Parmenide‘s doctrine that "all is one" and contrary to the evidence of our senses, the belief in plurality and change was mistaken, and in particular that motion

IMO A
Consider 3 parts of the doctrine: all is one blah blah, contrary to our evidences blah blah and in particular blah blah.
WE need "that" for each of these parts!
Also deviced by is better than deviced of/deviced from!
But just using "that" parallelism B,C,D and E can be eliminated.
Remember to check for other "that"s when you see one of them!
GMAT loves "that"!

Thanks. Can you please explain the parallelism here wrt to 'that'?
Also, shouldn't the last sentence be: , and that in particular motion is nothing but an illusion to maintain the parallelism?

Using POE , first choices can be eliminated for using past tense when the whole context is in present .
Therefore , C and E out.
A paradox is devised by a person(Zeno) not from or of , B and D out .
Only choice A left in which "all is one" and the belief in .... are parallel with that .. and that...

How do we have 3 "thats" in the right answer, along with two "ands"?

Hi,
It has two items in parallel..
That A and that B, and that C..
Look there is no comma prior to first 'that' and those two are clubbed together and these two are then paralleled to third..
Let me think of a simple example..
Nowadays people want jobs that are demanding and that are adventurous, and in particular, that are highly paid.
