Will just taking out the "it" make this sentence correct?
The disease is typified by a delay in motor development, by self-destructive behavior, and it leads to death.

  • English -

    No, in order to make the series' elements parallel, you need a third phrase that starts with "by" and ends with a prepositional phrase ... so you have this:

    ... by a delay ..., by self-destructive behavior, and by ________________.

    How will you rephrase the last part of this sentence?

  • English -

    and by death.

  • English -

    Yes, that works. Good!
