Picking E.
B and D are out because of 'were'.
C is wrong as like is wrongly comparing the financial success to International sporting events.
A is out because we need 'as' for proper conjunction of the two clauses.

this might be a dumb ?, but why "were" is wrong? isn't it Olympic games that "were"... games are plural...

I picked B... because of the comma placement that isn't underlined.... and also sporting events are || to the olympic games

E .. we need to use 'as' instead of 'like' for correct comparisions

Indeed Olympic games is a plural noun. However it is not an issue here. Because B is composed of two independent clauses, it needs a conjunction or a semicolon in place of comma.
