Because the key witness died just prior to the start of the trial, Detectives Mack and Smith were not able in determining the extent of administrative corruption.

A. Detectives Mack and Smith were not able in determining the extent of-- Wrong. Must be "able to determine"
B. therefore the detectives, Mack and Smith, were unable to determine the extent of-- Wrong. "Therefore" must be removed. Form is Because X,Y
C. Mack and Smith, the detectives, were not able of determining the extent to -- Wrong. Must be "able to determine"
D. Detectives Mack and Smith were not able to determine the extent of--Correct
E. the extent was unable to be determined by Detectives Mack and Smith of -- Wrong. The detectives were unable to determine the extent of corruption. "extent"by itself makes no sense. So "the extent of administrative corruption" should come together
