The following verbs do not need to be in the form of the previous verbs' sentence, but they should be to add clarity to your writing. This is known as parallelism. Parallel structure (also called parallelism) is the repetition of a chosen grammatical form within a sentence.
They do not need to be a gerund, they can almost any part of speech.
These have parallel structure:
I like hiking, biking, and swimming. (These are all gerunds.)
Mary wanted to make sure that she made her presentation creatively, effectively and persuasively. (These are all adverbs.)
My mom criticized public schools because they require students to attend, receive money from the government, and destroy students' humanity. (These are all verbs.)
Yet, these do not have parallel structure.
I hiked, bike and swam. (Notice the first and third actions are past tense, but the second action is a present.)
Dogs are great pets for the following reasons: they are loyal, they are loving, and because of their obedience. (First and second traits are adjectives, but third trait is a noun.)
People who get ahead do lots of different things such as: attend college, studying, and working hard. (Second and third are gerunds, yet first is a participle.)
It becomes tremendously awkward to read: so the best thing you should do is to make all three actions the same part of speech and the same tense.
Hope this helps!
