International sporting events need not be fiscal disasters, the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates that fact.

(A) the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates that fact
(B) for example, the 1992 Olympic Games were financially successful
(C) like the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates
(D) a fact demonstrated by the 1992 Olympic Games, which were financially successful
(E) as the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates

A - no connection between the two parts before and after the comma
B - for example is awkward
C - could be ok
D - which were financially successful - incorrect
E - could be ok

Go eith E

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