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

Financially successful" wrong idiom to use...

A , C , E are left.

Like X, Y ...C is wrong becoause "like" is followed by clause...

In A two independent clauses ( " International sporting events need not be fiscal disasters " and " the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates that fact" ) are being joined by a comma. So A is wrong.

E is left . E is correct.

4. [modal] British English used in negative sentences when saying that something is not necessary or not always true ⇨ have to
need not/needn’t
You needn’t stay long.
Going to the dentist need not necessarily be a painful experience.
need not have done something/need not do something
You needn’t have spent all that money.
I needn’t have worried.
need I/we etc do something? British English old-fashioned:
Need we leave so soon?
somebody need never do something
Jim need never find out what I said

The only option that makes sense is "E", as it has the right structure. Its kind of funny cause I don't think I need to elaborate, as some structures are always the best fit.

Correct Answer: E

A: Run-on (each clause has a subject and verb).
B: Also a run-on. If the comma after disasters were a semi-colon, B would be acceptable.
C: "Like" is being used here, incorrectly, as "as" (meaning, effectively, "for example").
D: Wordy, and "a fact" is not an ideal construction (when "as" works perfectly fine). Further, compared to E, D names the Olympic Games as evidence, while E names the financial success of those games as evidence.
E: Correct
