"Nevertheless" and "although" - redundancy ---> A, B are out
FBI is singular ----> C, D are out

It leaves us with E.

A. Although it is a federal body, nevertheless the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not enforce law in the United States, this responsibility belonging
B. Although the Federal Bureau of Investigation is a federal body, nevertheless it does not enforce law in the United States, this responsibility belonging
C. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, although a federal body, do not enforce law in the United States, this being a responsibility that belongs
D. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, although it is a federal body, do not enforce law in the United States, this responsibility belonging
E. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, although it is a federal body, does not enforce law in the United States, this responsibility belonging

This question checks our knowledge on redunduncy and subject verb agreement.

A and B are out because although and nevertheless are redundant.

C and D are out because Federal Bureau of Investigation is a singular subject and needs a singular verb.

E is the correct answer.

Shouldn't option E end with belongs?

The sentence would then read as follows:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation, although it is a federal body, does not enforce law in the United States, this responsibility belongs to the state and local authorities.

Hi storm1327,

this is a case of 'Noun+Noun Modifier'

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, although it is a federal body, does not enforce law in the United States, this responsibility (Noun) belonging (Noun modifier) to the state and local authorities.

Hope it helps.

In that case the sentence would be a run-on sentence: two independent clauses separated by a comma. The following would be correct though:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, although it is a federal body, does not enforce law in the United States; this responsibility belongs to the state and local authorities. (Two Independent clauses separated by a semi-colon).

In Option E, the part "this responsibility belonging to the state and local authorities" is an absolute phrase ( noun + noun modifier), as already explained in the post above.

Morover I have doubt whether GMAT prefers inserting a dependent clauses WITHIN an indepedent clause. Here the dependent clause "although it is a federal body" is inserted wthin the independent clause "The Federal Bureau of Investigation does not enforce law in the United States." Ideally the dependent clause should be BEFORE OR AFTER the dependent clause.
