    Kind of difficult do describe parallel structure without giving away the answer.

    But I'll try. So basically, the essential phrase of interest is "neither...nor" since it occurs in each statement. What you want to do is pay attention to the verbs. If a verb comes immediately after neither, a verb of the same tense should come immediately after nor as well. That's the best I can describe.
