Take another look at the sentence:

In preparation for her run, Alicia __________, applied sunscreen, and increased the volume on her iPod.

The blank needs to begin with a simple past tense verb. You chose did tighten ..., which uses the auxiliary verb did and thus causes a parallelism error.

Before you continue, review the rules for parallel structure.

Go back to the sentence to try again.
