I chose option E; reason being if there is no market outside Corollia, then the illegally copied software by criminal ring would have been sold in corollia only, thereby reducing the demand of the legally made software and hence reducing the prices. What is the fault in this reasoning?

The problem is not as much with your reasoning as with what you are trying to do in this question. Remember that this is an assumption question. We need to choose the option that the argument needs in order to get to its conclusion.

If we go for E, we're effectively saying that for prices to fall in Corollia as a result of the activities of the local criminal rings, it is necessary that those criminal rings operate exclusively in Corollia. In other words, if they operate in even one market apart from Corollia, their activities cannot be the reason for a fall in prices in Corollia.

Because there is no reason to think that operating outside Corollia makes it impossible for Corollian criminal rings to hurt manufacturers, we remove option E.
