Isn't "police" singular? in that case B,C,D,E are wrong, referring to "they".

I would go for A in that case?

Please see the comment from Founder of the GMATCLUB
"The Police is plural when you refer to people and singular when you are talking about an organization.

Usually it is The Police - there is an article.
"


From the above we can conclude that
THE POLICE(Orgnaization) can't tape the conversations
THE POLICE(People) can tape te conversations

So here police is plural.


See below link for more information.

D is using past perfect tense "had obtained' which is correct.

the police ..taped conversaitons.. and then .. they(police) had obtained information

both are occured in different timings.. this elimate A,B,E
Between C and D --> C has parallel issue

i believe that ..used is the correct start to the underlined portion.

"she suspected the police of having illegally tapes ... and then [having] used.."

B clearly has a problem with "as"

I think we need a "had obtained" tense in this to suggest that the obtaining of information happened before the suspection.

so in my opinion i lock in C

Intially I was almost trapped for C... I got some reasoning why this choice is wrong..

(i) .....taped her confidential conversations...... used the information they had obtained ..... (These two are ||)
add having
(ii).....having taped her confidential conversations..... [having] used the information they had obtained ..... (These two are ||)
add illegally
(iii)...of having illegally taped her confidential conversations..... [of having illegally] used the information they had obtained ..... ( These two are ||)
(iv) ..of having illegally taped her confidential conversations..... of using the information they had obtained(These two are ||)

Out of (iii) and (iv) which one looks good?

I don't think police are illegally using the information , they illegally taped and using the information

So will go for D. correct me if I am wrong

I don't think police are illegally using the information , they illegally taped and using the information

So will go for D. correct me if I am wrong


you are right in saying that the police are not illegally using info.

BUT...C is right becuase it says police illegally taped conversations and THEN obtained more info

i think "then" in this sentence is crucial since it allowes us to determine what the underlined portion should be || to.
