A. When she notices the police car's flashing lights in her rearview mirror . Incorrect
This should not be in present tense as suzzane pulled her car is in past.
B. When she notices the flashing in her rearview mirror of the police car's lights. Incorrect
here it seems like she is viewing in the rearview mirror of police car.
C. Noticing the police car's flashing lights in her rearview mirror. Correct
Rightly states that when she noticed she pulled her car.
D. After having noticed the flashing in her rearview mirror of the police car's lights. Incorrect
same as B
E. Having noticed the police car's flashing lights in her rearview mirror . Incorrect
this action started in the past and was discontinued when suzzane pulled her car so using having is nonsensical

IMO C i think , after the first underline sentence give us hint that we need a phase modifying suzanne so
A,B AND D eliminated
C- correct
E- use of having is incorrect and c is more concise than e

I also had in a haste marked C as the answer......but realised my mistake after seeing the OA E....

What I understand is that the mistake in C is: "Noticing the police's car.......Suzanne pulled her car........." is like both these activities are simultaneously happening right there at the same moment...giving it a meaning something like this: "Suzanne is stepping aside while she is seeing the mirror/noticing the flash in rear-view mirror"...

Choice E).......Having noticed the police car's .........clearly removes this ambiguity....first she sees the flash and then she steps aside.....though initially may appear to be a passive and long statement, it removes ambiguity and is more clear....

May be my understanding is wrong, correct me experts.....

Its clearly between C and E.Though grammatically they both are correct,There is a very subtle meaning difference between the two of them.

C. Noticing the police car's flashing lights in her rearview mirror,Suzanne pulled her car over to the side of the road.
E. Having noticed the police car's flashing lights in her rearview mirror ,Suzanne pulled her car over to the side of the road.

In E, use of the past participle form emphasizes that the first action has been completed before the second action begins. Thus, we could paraphrase these two sentences as follows:

C.When Suzanne saw the lights ahead, she simultaneously stopped my car.It means seeing the light and stopping the car happens at the same time
E.Suzanne noticed that there had been flashing lights and then she stopped my car.It is much logical.

E makes better logical sense.So E is the right answer.

Hello Experts

Please help me differentiate between answer choices C and E.
C :- it appears that Suzanne notices the lights in her rear view mirror and at the same time pulls acar to the side
E:- Sussane notices lights in her rear view mirror and later on pulls car to the side

I am not able to understand the difference created by "noticing" and "having noticed"

"having noticed" appears to imply the occurrence of 2nd action after the completion of 1st. But logically both actions should occur simultaneously
