As usual, I defer from the rest.

I choose B.

I see two problems in D.

1. Two clauses are not connected by a co-ordinating conjunction.
2. 1992 Olympic Games -- Is it singular or Plural. I'm not sure on
this issue. I would consider it as one event and the use of "was"
is appropriate.

According to this clause, then your selection of B would be a problem too?

Games is plural. Rethinking ?

If you take "games" seperately, then it is plural.
If you consider "1992 Olympic Games", then it is Singular.
Another reason for this Being Singlular is that "G" in Games
is Capitalised. So, it is definitely singular.

I missed that capital "G" in "Games" before.

Good observation Kpadma. I agree with that. I did not even notice the capitalized "G" in some of the options

Not sure what capitalization does to grammar. In my view regardless of capitals or italics, the term "1992 olympic games" (even with a G) will be plural. But I would like to know this Capital-singular rule, if from an authentic grammar source. Something to learn everyday on this forum

this a question is for like/as. like is used for persons. so E is the answer coz it uses right word as and it is idiomatic.

A) would have been correct if it were worded as

the financial success of 1992 Olympic games demonstrates that International Sporting Events need not be fiscal disasters.

This is a tough SC. I will go with B because my ear likes it.
All the sentences are disjoint.
