Very easy to answer this question. Alternative E use backward sentence,which is not needed. "backward sentence" is used when the author intends to highlight something. thereby, E changes the meaning of the original sentence. In addition, a very good skill in cracking GMAT SC is that you have to bear in mind if the original sentence is right, not change it.
