"the' in "is maybe the more difficult for analysis" indicates that we need a superlative there. So "A" & "D" are out.

may be is not the term to say some thing with some degree of certainty. So "C" and "E" are out.

So the right answer is "B"

Comaprision of more than two. Superlative most should be used.

Also, maybe is used when sth is not sure. Here it is being said with some certainity based on experience. Probably (aka likely) is the right word.

Option B is right answer.
