Financial success often results from certain decisions made by individuals, specifically, decisions which differ from those made by the majority of the market.

a. which differ from those made by the majority of the market

b. that differ from the majority of the market

c. that differ from those made by the majority of the market

d. which are different from those made by the majority of the market

e. that are different from those decisions made by the majority of the market.

I know that which should always follow a noun, and that it cannot modify a phrase.
But it is still unclear to me when should I use which and when should I use that
Thanks!

I understand that C can be the correct answer, but i am not able to find the reason why E is the wrong option.
Is it because its verbose as in because its not concise ?
