a) reduce the qualifications for promotion to department head
Correct.


b) reduce the average number of employees per department
the company won't allow as mentioned in the passage-
'have current department heads take over more than one department'
c) reduce the responsibilities of each department
no mention.
d) promote more than one employee from any department to serve as heads of departments
the company won't allow as mentioned in the passage.
e) promote any current department heads to higher-level managerial positions
irrelevant.

Argument has already stated the conditions for the qualification required to be the Head of the Department.

A. This gives the correct reason as to why some departments will be without department heads
B. Even if the average no of employees are reduced, the number of employees qualified for head are half of expected vacancies.
C. Irrelevant.
D. This is already stated in the conditions that no head will serve more than one department.
E. Does not make sense here.

Kudos if it helps :-)
