the arguments states that the new managers are brought in to terminate the project.

the question is "why new managers are more likely to terminate a failing project?"

only E gives a reasonable answer to the above question ... the new manager did not start the project and does not have his job or reputation at stake for termination of the project.

so E is the correct ans

A) new managers may not see those problem too

The new manager will more likely terminate the project because he was not involved in the earlier execution of the project and so will not be questioned for his decision to terminate.

It is better to terminate than to wear the hat of the failure of project.

So E.

Only contenders are C and E
C uses "likelihood of success". Which contradicts the premise - When a project is failing and should be terminated
