D should be the right answer.

in A their is abiguius.

in B and C it is ambiguius.

between D and E, E changes meaning.

so D is the right choice.

D. "test driven" is adjective and should precede the noun, "cars"

I vote for (D), too.

IMO, "Test-driven" can be a perfect tense of "Test-drive".

phrase preceding noun is adj.
test-driven cars = (little) used cars=====> adj+noun

pleaded guilty to having done s-thing (passive voice) is the correct idiom.

Hands down D.
