I will take E
B destroys the sentence flow logic:
was advised of
1-his right to remain silent,
2-told he could not leave
as can be seen, you can be advised of your right to... but not of "told"...

E) was advised
1- that he had a right to remain silent
2- that he could not leave
and was...
perfect parallelism

I would go with B too....
The suspect was
a) advised of his right
b) told he could not leave
c) interrogated

With E, the 'that' use seems suspect. OA please?

B for me. parallelism.

1 ...burglary was advised...
2 ...was told...
3 ...was... interrogated.

there is no need of "was" after "and"; opening sentence takes care of it.

Hmm, sorry, I see my explanation does not even make sense :? This is what happens when you try to answer questions at 2AM after a wedding... :) B must be it.

Advised of sounds wrong.
The suspect was advised that he had a right --> correct tense and correct structure
'that he could not leave' in choice E gives parallellism
and was interrogated -> correct tense

E is my answer

B fo rme.

1. Anything with a was at the end is wrong. A, D and E goes off.
2. Between B and C, C is wrong for continuous use of two 'and'.
