hmmmmmmm..........

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.

'A' it is. But gmat_crack's explanation a bit wrong.

There is a IIism here but in other place.

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.

A) by bugging his phone, and to make
Sounds good. || and correct use of passive construction

B) by bugging his phone, and by making
Not || lel
C) by bugging his phone, and she would make
not ||lel
D) from bugging his phone and from making
not || lel
E) to bug his phone, and to make
evidence to bug is not correct
