11. Once they had seen the report from the medical
examiner, the investigators did not doubt whether
the body recovered from the river was the man who
had attempted to escape from the state prison.

(A) did not doubt whether the body recovered from
the river was
(B) have no doubt whether the body recovered
from the river was
(C) had not doubted that the body recovered from
the river was
(D) have no doubt whether the body recovered
from the river was that of
(E) had no doubt that the body recovered from the
river was that of

This is a typical ETS problem. Comes down to A and E. You can't say body=man because it is nonsense to say the body who had attempted to escape from the state prison. Rather, you have to say the body belongs to the man.

(E) based on the fact that forms of the expression "to have no doubt" are idioms...
