IMO:
Its definitely between D and E --"They" is wrong here, but i find D and E also incorrect
future and later --Its redundant
Can you please provide OE

In A & B, they does not agree with company management (singular).
In C, D & E later and future are redundant.

Not sure about the validity of the question.

Your reasoning is correct - all options have problems as you mentioned. Nonetheless the main error for all the options is the use of past perfect ("could have sold") for a future event with respect to past - past perfect is applicable for past of past, but not for future of past. Conditional future ("could sell" / "would sell") is correct for depiciting future of past.
