Take another look at the sentence:

Instead of finishing her chemistry homework, Terry wanted to spend her birthday money at the mall, __________, and eat pizza in the food court.

The blank requires an infinitive phrase. You chose planning to see a movie at the theater, which is a gerund phrase and thus causes a parallelism error.

Before you continue, review the rules for parallel structure.
