who can apply - a manager.

B & E -

E - wordy and confusing
C, D - changes the meaning
A - no logical modifier.

B - best choice.. though 'its' doesn't have clear referrent in B.

All answer choices are wrong. B is little better among them.

B it is.
As explained by syamee_u, only B and E stand.

However, E is wrong because :

e) managers at a company can determine how much effort ought to be dedicated to each of these products in order to meet the company’s goals in both the short and long term

"these products"......which products????

Though I answered this question incorrectly, I think the answer is Option (B) because of concision
