For the first one, C and D sound very awkward when read aloud, and in A the use of a semicolon before however is unnecessary so B. And the second one parallel structure, or parallelism, is single words, multi-word phrases and clauses that can be made parallel by ensuring each item is equal. Examples: Not parallel On his day off, he did this, this and did that. Parallel On his day off, he did this, this and that. Not Parallel Joel packed sneakers, sweatpants and put in three pairs of socks. Parallel Joel packed sneakers, sweatpants and three pairs of socks. Not Parallel Mary likes hiking, biking and to go running. Parallel Mary likes hiking, biking and running. Mary likes to go hiking, to go biking and to go running. Mary likes to go hiking, biking and running. Not Parallel The salesman said the car was fast, sporty and didn’t use a lot of gas. Parallel The salesman said the car was fast, sporty and economical.

I actually believe it is A for the first one because a semicolon is used when the next segment can be a separate sentence, which in this case it can be. =) But yes, the second one is B.

Actually on second thought I do agree with @MyEyesHurt on the first one being A instead of B
