The only reason E can't be correct is that we can't discount what the stem says ---- (though we can discount the logic of the stem as we have been asked to do) ---- viz. that Sarah is not famous.

E says - Sarah could be famous for another reason which contradicts the stem.

but what is the difference between D and A, B, C?
D says it is a small orchestra, which has nothing to do with a major one, although both are orchestras. D is not much different from ABC.

D

If Sarah is not famous, this doesn't mean she is not concert pianist. She may be concert pianist but not famous
