"Having taped ..conversations" makes me to think that this is a "Perfect Participal" means the action was going on for a period of time in the past...In such case I will go for B..Otherwise straight forward A

What is OA

Initially went for E, but as dwivedys pointed out it is a "false" parallel choice. Answer should be A

the OA is "D". This question came from the 1000 SC set

Lately I realized that "of having........" and "of using....." should be parallel..
Its D

ok, now that we have OA, it should not be difficult to justify it

I can see that in the timeline "taping" occurs before "using" - "then" is indicating it. So, D makes sense

Both A and D are parallel. The difference is in tense

Well actually police is not a collective noun. It's an Aggregate Noun. Aggregate Nouns always take plural verbs. Aggregate Nouns could be in singular or plural form.

Singular:
Cattle, Clergy, Police, Offspring, People, Poultry, Vermin, Intelligentsia, majority, Swine.

Plural:
Communication, Arms, Data, Goods, Media, Outskirts, Remains, Troops, Barracks,
Dregs.

I hope this helped.

thanks for clearing this up.

B/c in manhattan gmat there is a specific example in which police is singular. So I thought it was a collective noun.
