correct idiom is difference between x and y - this eliminates A,B and D
C - government agents scanning of items .... government agents searching through the hard drive - parallelism issue

Choice A and B are wrong because of incorrect usage of idiom 'between X and Y'

A. government agents scanning items for explosives or looking through a suitcase full of clothing, from searching through the hard drive of a laptop computer containing workpapers

B. government agents who are scanning items for explosives or looking through a suitcase full of clothing, or searching through the hard drive of a laptop computer containing workpapers

Choice C is wordy - scanning of items'
C. government agents scanning of items for explosives or looking through a suitcase full of clothing, and searching through the hard drive of a laptop computer which contains work papers

Choice D is wrong because pronoun 'that' is used to refer to 'agents' (= humans)
D. government agents that scan items for explosives or that look through a suitcase full of clothing, and that search through the hard drive of a laptop computer containing workpapers

Choice E is right choice
E. government agents scanning items for explosives or looking through a suitcase full of clothing, and searching through the hard drive of a laptop computer containing work papers[/quote]
