I believe everyone should have been able to get through this one.
However, not to spoil the fun, I have put my query below in gray.
So, kindly select the text in order to see it.

Query: "Why is E wrong? Is it because compared to D, E is wordy or is it something to do with Men's Interest."

The correct answer is D. The other options are wordy. Men's interest is firstly wordy, secondly its wrong. Its hsould be Man's interest

I rechecked the question. It seems they have put B and E options as the same.

Infact, I apologize for the underlined stem. I had to type the whole question, hence I must have typed it wrong.

The sentence and the option A should read "Men's" and not "Man's".

I have edited it now in the Main question stem.

I feel Option D is wordy and quite passive in nature and hence will not support the same.

bhatiagp is correct on this one.
OA is D.

I had chosen E for the fact that D was doing away with the Possesive Noun "Men".

I still can't find any issue with the words "Men's interest".

Good Discussion.
But to what I understand :
<<
ref:Dictionary.com)
man singular
men, verb, manned, man·ning, interjection
–noun
1. an adult male person, as distinguished from a boy or a woman.
2. a member of the species Homo sapiens or all the members of this species collectively, without regard to sex: prehistoric man.
3. the human individual as representing the species, without reference to sex; the human race; humankind: Man hopes for peace, but prepares for war.
>>


For me,
Man hopes for peace, but prepares for war.
Men hope for peace, but prepares for war.

Both mean the same thing.
