GMAT Sentence Correction 13-18

I solved the Sentence Correction questions 13 to 18; 6 correct.
Reference: The Official Guide for GMAT® Verbal Review, 2nd Edition

These six questions are kind of straightforward. One of the findings I've had through trying 18 questions of GMAT Sentence Corrrecrion is that parallelism is quite valued in English sentence structures. Here we need to be reminded that the longer a main clause gets, the easier it gets for us to fail to see parallelism and its absence. The following question is a good example to test your ability to parse a sentence and to identify parallelism that is supposed to be contsructed;

17. Travelers to Mars would have to endure low levels of gravity for long periods of time, avoid large doses of radiation, contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil,and perhaps even having to ward off contamination by Martian life-forms.

Do you see through how the parallelism can be constructed in the sentence? It should be A (endure), B (avoid),C (contend with), and D (ward off) parallelism. So, the correct sentence should look like as follows;

Travelers to Mars would have to endure low levels of gravity for long periods of time, avoid large doses of radiation, contend with the chemically reactive Martian soil,and perhaps even ward off contamination by Martian life-forms.
