Comfort is irrelevant for us.

B- The travelers who choose to check-in one’s baggage is neither time-sensitive nor a business traveler.
Extreme. Also, we can not go the other way round: we know 'business travelers avoid check-in baggage', but can not comment on the vice versa situation .

C- Carry-on baggage is similar to check-in baggage in terms of size, weight allowance, and other restrictions.
Dimensions are irrelevant. Also, if anything, this choice weakens our conclusion.

D- There are no advantages that check-in baggage allows over carry-on baggage that are of any use to business travelers.
Bingo! Negate this choice to confirm. yes, it does ruin our conclusion on negating!

E- Carry-on baggage is free whereas check-in baggage needs to be paid for.
Money is irrelevant.

I do agree and thought on same lines for eliminating options A,C and E. However, I have chosen option 'B' and my logic behind eliminating option 'D' is:
D- There are no advantages that check-in baggage allows over carry-on baggage that are of any use to business travelers.
Even if there are some advantages that check-in baggage allows, for time sensitive business travelers, there is no reason to think unless there is some reduction in waiting time
