I take E
A,B are out b/c of being
C, D are out because the idiom is "different from".
Only E seems to fit the bill.

Will go for 'E' - little of is idiomatic.

A,B & C - incorect or missing modifiers for 'generalisation'

a.

b. of there being little that is significantly different

c. of little that is significantly different

d. that there is little that is significantly different

e. that there is little of significant differences

Correct idiom in this case is 'generalization that'. Eliminate a, b, c.

b/w d & e, e is gramatically incorrect ->singular 'is' cannot describe plural 'differences'.

Answer E.

From one of the grammar notes on omitting "that"

You should NOT omit “that”, when the subordinate clause begins with an adverbial phrase or anything other than the subject:

Ex: She said that under no circumstances would she allow us to skip the meeting.

The book argues that eventually the housing supply will increase.

This last sentence would be ambiguous if that were omitted, since the adverb eventually could then be construed as modifying either argues or will increase.

OA is D.
In E verb is wrongly indicating plural differences.
