Can someone explain the reasoning behind the solution:
I'm unable to find a disagreement point.
A. a corporation commits a crime if one of its employees, acting on behalf of and to the benefit of the corporation, commits a crime.
B. a crime is committed if one of ((a)) corporation's employees acts on behalf of ((and to)) the benefit of the corporation ((and commits)) a crime. - incorrect. Passive form.

C. a corporation ((is committing)) a crime if one of its employees acted on behalf of and to the benefit of the corporation and ((committed a crime.)) - not parallel. Incorrect.

D. ((corporations)) commit crimes if its employees act on behalf of and to the benefit of the corporation, committing crimes. - not the right way/grammar. Whenever we take examples like this, it should always be in singular form.

E. crimes are committed if corporations have employees who, acting on behalf of and to the benefit of the corporation, ((were)) committing crimes. - incorrect.

Thus, A is the best choice.
