7. In December of 1987 an automobile manufacturer pleaded no contest to criminal charges of odometer tampering and agreed to pay more than $16 million in civil damages for cars that were test-driven with their odometers disconnected. (A) cars that were test-driven with their odometers disconnected (B) cars that it had test-driven with their disconnected odometers (C) its cars having been test-driven with disconnected odometers (D) having test-driven cars with their odometers disconnected (E) having cars that were test-driven with disconnected odometers _________________ hey ya......

"civil damages for cars" is wrong. it's not for the cars but for test-driving those cars. And E is wrong since it's not for having cars (which were test-driven without their odometers connected) that it was fined but for test-driving these cars.

b) Out: "it" has no clear referant
c) Out: "its" has no clear referant
d) Out: awkward.

D over E because it is much less wordy. Pay \$ in damages for (v~ing) is idiomatic.
