D
BCE awkward construction
A and D, D seems to have better meaning (charge for having cars not tested properly ...)

I was stuck between B and D, but I chose B. What is the grammatical issue with B?

D
Its a diction question - only one option clearly suggests that activity that would cause a fine.

"an automobile manufacturer ... their"

if so, it is [C] or [E]

i chose [C] but am far from confident

OA?

now i see what's wrong with B! In option B, when you say, "cars that it had test driven" implies that there are other cars that the manufacturer didn't test drive, a type of logical that doesn't make sense. As for option D, it's clear that it's talking about ALL the cars from the manufacturer.

Nevermind, I see it now, "their" is linked to "cars"... [D]
