1. A and B wrong; "who precticted.." and "whose predictions..." are subordinates that give more information to the main subject they modify. So, A and B make illogical comparions, A and B out

2. C has the same error in A and B , C out too

3. "analysts's predicting" is awkard and confusing, D out

E wins the game. Is it E OA? :-D
