two issues Parallelism and verb tense
she had embezzled, stolen and misled is correct and in right verb form
there is no word as misleaded...it should be misled
for this reason D nd A are out
B and C used stole, which is incorrect

E it is

we need past participle --so stolen is correct ..
A and E ---misleaded is wrong in A
mislead is also wrong , it must be misled .....
simple past and past participle== misled
can you please check the answer choice E .....

Is it common in sentence correction to provided words in answer choices that doesn't exist? I chose option A but read here that misleaded is not a word. I wasn't aware GMAT tests this as well?
