Wow

this one is a mess. Between A and E, I guess A looks good. E seems to distort the meaning.

A or E. But E for clarity. A seems to have some redundancy 'it is probable that its belief..'

E.

a mess i agree, but i don't think E distorts.

1. it is probable that ...... is significant
vs
5. ........... is probably significant

I'm going for E, but with Kaplan who knows!!

E...
"it" refers to management.
"their" refers to forecasts.

One vote for E. "Probably" is preferred to "it is probable". Very complicated one!
