I need expert comments -

If I say "having been" is almost always wrong on gmat, am I correct?

e.g

Framed by traitorous colleagues, Alfred Dreyfus was imprisoned for twelve years before
there was exoneration and his freedom.
(A) there was exoneration and his freedom
(B) he was to be exonerated with freedom
(C) being exonerated and freed
(D) exoneration and his freedom
(E) being freed, having been exonerated

Could someone here please explain when "having been" could be right on gmat

Expert's post
1) "Having been exonerated, I went home"

Here with "having" - it has to modify a noun.

2) If you use it as a verb for "to be" as in "having been there, I can say this"

These are two use cases.

In the question above, it doesn't fit well with the sentence structure so E is not relevant.
