  • SC Question 33 in phase 2

    Hi ,

    Lewis and Clark were not the first white men to cross the continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific north of Mexico, and they did not visit places not already seen and mapped by generations of native people.

    A. and did not visit places not already seen and mapped by generations of native people.
    B. and they did not visit places not already seen and mapped by generations of native people.
    C. and they had not visit places not already seen and mapped by generations of native people.
    D. nor had they visited places not already seen and mapped by generations of native people.
    E .nor did they visit places not already seen and mapped by generations of native people.

    For the above question Answer is given as E. I would like to know why B can not be the right answer. In various sources it was given as B is not parallel. Could some one please explain why it is not parallel or explain if there is any other reason.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Sivaram

    E .nor did they visit places not already seen and mapped by generations of native people.

    Were not the first...nor did they visit places not already seen maintains parallelism and is better than option B, which is not grammatically incorrect.
