​Yes, it was a wrong word. It should be कार्य्यस्यापारमार्थिकत्वम् ।

​प्रकृत्यादिभ्य उपसङ्ख्यानम् इतिवार्त्तिकात् अभेदे तृतीया । यथा धान्येन धनी
इत्यत्र धान्याभिन्नधनविशिष्टः इत्यर्थः , तत्र धनपदार्थस्याभेदेन
धनीपदार्थैकदेशेन्वयः ।

​अविनाभावमादाय is correct.
अ-विनाभाव = The quality of not staying apart from (kAraNa).​

I was anyway tilting towards both, not only परिणाम। I just mentioned what

​As I said, that pot-example is always categorised as pariNAma in advaita
It is only vidyAraNya-muni, who has created a new prakriyA to treat all
kArya-s as vivartta of their cause. That's a new way to think. It is not
popular and accepted by all.
So, you have to be careful to not allow vagueness any space here.
That's why you have to treat vidyAraNya-s that chapter separately.
