"Having taped ..conversations" makes me to think that this is a "Perfect Participal" means the action was going on for a period of time in the past...In such case I will go for B..Otherwise straight forward A

What is OA

Initially went for E, but as dwivedys pointed out it is a "false" parallel choice. Answer should be A

(A) used the information obtained to find evidence supporting "of having" is ellipsing here

(C) used the information they had obtained to find evidence that would support

ok, now that we have OA, it should not be difficult to justify it :-D

I can see that in the timeline "taping" occurs before "using" - "then" is indicating it. So, D makes sense

Both A and D are parallel. The difference is in tense

Well actually police is not a collective noun. It's an Aggregate Noun. Aggregate Nouns always take plural verbs. Aggregate Nouns could be in singular or plural form.

Singular:
Cattle, Clergy, Police, Offspring, People, Poultry, Vermin, Intelligentsia, majority, Swine.

Plural:
Communication, Arms, Data, Goods, Media, Outskirts, Remains, Troops, Barracks,
Dregs.


I hope this helped.

thanks for clearing this up.

B/c in manhattan gmat there is a specific example in which police is singular. So I thought it was a collective noun.
