Answer choice analysis:-

(A) the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates that fact -Two indepencdent clauses are joined by a comma, that-here is used to refer tp the entire clause "International sporting events need not be fiscal disasters" .
(B) for example, the 1992 Olympic Games were financially successful - The 1992 Olympic Games is singular, for example can't be used as a conjunction
(C) like the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates like can't be followed by a clause to present examples
(D) a fact demonstrated by the 1992 Olympic Games, which were financially successful The 1992 Olympic Games is a single event an is singular .use of were is incorrect
(E) as the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates- gives a reason for the why international sporting events need not be financial disasters.Correct

IMO E
