B. although "he (her husband?)" is not clear in this sentence, B is correct. i never saw any question with such unclear pronouns.

definitely a difficult one. A and E are distractors.

The intevening phrase "which would..." is a relative clause modifying "companies that specialize in...".

to research needs to parallel to make, which it does in A.

Not || lel
C) by bugging his phone, and she would make
not ||lel
D) from bugging his phone and from making
