since for example follows fiscal disasters, it leads one to believe that the example is a fiscal disaster, which it is not

np problem with E .. jus one more question ... why are we using "were" with Olympic games ... isn't it an event ... shouldn't the usage be "was" ..can this be one of the reasons why "B" is wrong???
