"will not. prevent.." means the tense is future..hence A,B,D are ruled out (exoneraTED). out of C and D,C looks correct,also avoid BEING form in D. Thats my line of resoning

Here is a court doing some action; Only Choice C brings out that action without confusion or distortion.

Straight C ... The remaining choices use the term 'Exonerate' incorrectly

(A) from him being exonerated
(B) from exonerated him
(C) from exonerating him
(D) from being exonerated
(E) from having exonerating him


Answer: C
As a check, we can insert other action words:
'will not prevent the courts from punishing him' --> it will not be 'prevent the courts from [punished him/having punishing him]' etc
'will not prevent the boys from beating him'

2:3 split between exonerating and exonerated , the word "will" in the sentence is in future tense,so clearly +ing form wins.Between C and E ,E is using "having" which is awkward. So,C wins
