This is a dangling modifier problem and we need to make it clear that it is the "hypothesis" that is "plausible" and not the weakness.

In (E) it is not clear as to what "which" refers to : the weakness or the hypothesis. Moreover (E) makes "weakness" as the subject.

I spent the last ten minutes trying to figure out how on Earth E was the answer. I'm glad you posted your correction, and I can't improve upon what giddi77 has posted...
