Question

Like ants, termites have an elaborate social structure in which a few individuals reproduce and the rest are serving the colony by tending juveniles, gathering food, building the nest, or they battle intruders.
 
  1.  are serving the colony by tending juveniles, gathering food, building the nest, or they battle
  2. are serving the colony in that they tend juveniles, gather food, build the nest, or battle
  3. serve the colony, tending juveniles, gathering food, building the nest, or by battling
  4. serve the colony by tending juveniles, gathering food, by building the nest, or by battling
  5. serve the colony by tending juveniles, gathering food, building the nest, or battling
     


Solution

The correct option is E serve the colony by tending juveniles, gathering food, building the nest, or battling
 
The answer will be "E".
It is a simple case of Parallelism.
Option A and Option B are out as there is no Parallelism between "a few individuals reproduce and the rest are serving".
Options C, D and E correct the above error but Option C and D shows no Parallelism later in the sentence by using "or by battling".
