Nope. Police is plural. Look at the un-underlined part at the end using a plural pronoun 'their'. You can not reject BCDE on that count. It is a test of //ism. D is the answer.

The lawyer of defense suspected the police of two things:-
1) of having illegally taped her conversation
2) and of using the information for their use.
Option A, B and C are out.

We need 'the' before information as we are talking about a particular information. E is out

Picked D for ||ism.

E is passive. "such" is awkward.

E sounds too verbose. D should be correct.

Do you think this sc is from gmat-prep? when searching i've found it in 1000-verbal, which is advised not to be within standard. The OA is too wierd. Plz confirm the source otherwise it should not be post here.

Is that "the police" here should be considered a singular and B, C, D, E therefore should be all rejected?

I do have to say that this questions looks a bit sleazy and i doubt that it is a gmatprep question.

The Usage of ' and then' makes the question lack its credibility. The reason being both of them are taking place at different instances and are thus should not be parallel in nature. Moreover,
'and then of using' doesn't seem to be a proper usage .

I did choose D . But i strongly believe that all the answer choices are awkward.

Totally different type of question.. Not something you expect from GMAT prep... Neways D for me...

parallelism requires us to go for using... Eliminate A,B,C
E is a bit awkward... Passive... so D...

In my 2 cents,
she didn't use the information;hence,option A,B,and C are gone.
In E,"such information as" seems to give example;hence D is the most appropriate.
Moreover,the parallelism is maintained.She suspected the police of having ... || she suspected the police of using...
