b) shouldn’t allow having

d) cannot allow having
e) not being allowed to have

E-- presence of 'being' still makes it correct?

I went with E. since it seemed most logical but still can't get a hang of the whole sentence structure. Waiting for expert's analysis.

It should be allowed "to have" and not allowed "having". Plus, the tense is wrong for that usage.

No, it is not - this seems to be a flawed question.

a) could not be allowed to have
b) shouldn’t allow having
c) are not allowed having
d) cannot allow having
e) not being allowed to have

i was confused between A and E.

'being' is generally wrong in GMAT.

i opted for option A.

there is no punctuation in the entire sentence.

and what could be the correct form of this sentence if it appears in GMAT.
