D.
caluse parallelism

she suspected the police of having Y

Left D and E

D correctly uses past perfect tense to show flow of events.

This is a good one. D.
I think, the use of 'then' just before the underlined part makes the difference btw choosing A/B/C or D/E. It forces the 'ing' parallelism.
E is awkward. So we are left with D.

The correct indiom is "she suspected..... then used....." Eliminate D and E.

Eliminate C since the past perfect tense is not neccessary, i.e. "had obtained." Eliminate B because "such information as they obtained" is awkward.

I pick A.

C - This is the one which has used (matches with taped) and "they" referring to the police.

Update - Went by the wrong word. ||ism is for having / using and the choice is D.

This is indeed a tough one!

I'm going with <b>A</b> off an educated guess (answering at real GMAT speed). Answer choice "A" is the shortest answer and that IS my guessing strategy on SC :-D

I go for D, because of parallelism "of having" and "of using"- Choice E with would be supportive of is too wordy for me.

the right parallelism here should be "having taped" and "having used", so the best one in my opinion is C even if "having" is not expressed (dont think it's necessary to express it)
