I think the answer is E.

Each of the other choices are in fact things that are necessary for there to be a market for the proposed item.

A - If speed were essential, there would be no need for this chip.
B - If electronic chips with 12,000 switches could withstand the radiation there would be no need for this chip
C - If there are no applications where chips must survive intense ratiation there would be no need for this chip
D - If other components within some devices are not able to survive radiation, there would be no point in having this chip.

E - all that's left.

E makes sense.

If E is true, i.e if the manufactures are able to protect their chips or computers from radiation where necessary, there wont be any use for the specially created chips.....

Straightforward (E). If other competing chip manufacturers can replicate the same technology, at a faster speed, then the company will lose its market niche.
