Got stuck between A and B. But will chose A on exam day 'cause of tense and concise.
In B past tesnse "would" doesn't sounds good to me.

A seems wrong because the first it is not needed and adds to the ambiguity of the sentence.

A. the first it makes the sentence unclear, and is not needed
B. management is singular but their is plural
C. changes the meaning of the sentence to say the forecasts are not significant.
D. their believe but management is singular, and sentence is awkwardly phrased.
E. E on the other hand has it and their, you know the it has to belong to mangament (which is singular) and their to forecasts (which is plural)

Therefore Agree with E

IMO,

A & E mean same. But compared to "E", "A" is wordy. So "E"

it is probable that X is significant VS X is probably significant

we can eliminate A?B because "it is", "there is/are", "here is/are" are normally incorrect and wordy.

C is awakward. D has wrong pronoun referent. "their" does not agree with mgmt.

E is correct, concise and short.

(E) works here. Its clearly refers to the management and as Himalaya mentioned, it`s the most concise.
