Look at choice B, the OA in this official question, approving " of experiments investigating".
Does GMAT consider this 'prepostion+noun+verbing" as such a generally incorrect structure as you have indicated? Or is it more contextual or meaning based? For example, one might argue as to how experiments can investigate as only interpreters or analysts can do that. However, if GMAT could accept it, why shouldn't we?
Incidentally, is there any specific reason for calling the said structure as incorrect?

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-idio ... nsequence/, according to Magoosh, the rule in the picture file should work.

Also, according to Kaplan, test takers should avoid V-ing as much as possible.

With specific reference to the structure ' preposition +noun+ verbing' --Last week local shrimpers held a news conference to take some credit for the resurgence of the rare Kemp's ridley turtle, saying that their compliance with laws requiring that turtle-excluder devices be on shrimp nets protect adult sea turtles.

(A) requiring that turtle-excluder devices be on shrimp nets protect

(B) requiring turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting

(C) that require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets protect

(D) to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets are protecting

(E) to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA
B

Here is yet another official question that deviates from the perception, probably as an exception.
