A and E are the best.
A tries to provide 2 independent clauses..that's wrong in this context.

go with E

If we were to use A, we should have used two independent sentences.
..sports should not be fiscal disaster. The financial.....demonstrates this fact. ..If this were be the case, I would have chose A.
E is the continous sentence that helps explaining the opening sentence.

does this make sense

I vote for D.

E "... demonstrates" what? that it WAS a disaster or it WAS NOT?

D shows parallelism also Internation events and Olympic games ... (though not sure about thi part)

mY 2 cents:

Is it just me or is the first part of the sentence "Sporting events" being compared to " financial success..." and what not?
The only choice I see that makes and sense to me is B) Olympics is an example of an INternational Sporting event that is financially sucessful.

I would not as D) Praet..., purely because "...a fact demonstrated by 1992 Olympic games..." implies that they were financially successful. To say "...which were financially successful" is redundant.

K, I know everyone disagrees with me, but whats the Official answer here?
