Vocaloid:

Margot prefers the action of a hockey game to watching ice skating performances. in this sentence structure (prefers ___ to ___), both blanks must be parallel (have the same structure) notice how the two items being compared are: - "the action of a hockey game" - "watching ice skating performances" this lacks parallelism as the first one is a noun and the second is a verb/gerund try changing them *both* to a noun phrase, or *both* to the gerund form to fix the paralellism
