If it were in the actual CAT, I would have picked E but I suspect B to be a potential contender

This question is looking for parallel construction. We know this because it is a series of things separated by commas. We can eliminate choices A, B, and C immediately, because the other elements in this series do not contain to. We can then eliminate D because to sound is not in agreement with monitoring/receiving - sounding is, which makes E the correct answer

E acting as guardians and sounding

E is definely not the answer!

Let us disect the sentence and remove the flush.

..... different duties such as monitoring,
acting and sounding, and receiving.

Two and in the parallel construction is definely
not a correct construction.
