i'll go with B. although it might be A but I am deciding firm on B. the sentence flows easily and doesnt feel sluggish and overburdened. also follows logically - conclusion followed by evidence. [i've been doing too many CR's as of latelly lol :)

E.

B & D are out because of the use of 'were'
C is out because of 'like'
Between A & E I will go with E

i'm still sticking with B change of tense is allowed here because there are two past events in the sentence - present/future games and past games such as 1992 which obviously has occured before the present/future therefore the usage of past tense 'were' is OK

E should be it.

(B) for example, the 1992 Olympic Games were financially successful
- Created Run on sentence. 2 IC without coordinate conjunction
(C) like the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates

OUT Like comparing the financial success to International sporting events
and morover like is not a conjunction, it is a preposition.

(D) a fact demonstrated by the 1992 Olympic Games, which were financially successful
- moreover passive construction Created Run on sentence. 2 IC without coordinate conjunction

(E) as the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates

You always need comma when you join clauses to make compound, complex, and complex compound senetences.

If you dont than their subject need to be same and verbs are repeated.

I read, and I study. (need comma)

I read and study ( no comma because second verb has a subject)

Awesome Ritesh. You have deconstructed the choices very clearly. I now understand why the other choices are wrong. I was trying to choose between A and E, and picked A. I understand now, why A is wrong

Like compares nouns. As compares phrases and clauses.

(D) a fact demonstrated by the 1992 Olympic Games, which were financially successful
wrong subject verb tense.
