ranga41,

Your choice is correct. E is prefect.

Lets discuss this

A, here they seems to refer to the same managers in US, so wrong...
B, same problem as A and seems to indicate that the same managers in US went to Japan and make different decisions.
C Who, Restrictive clause is modifying Japan, totally out
D Here The managers are comapres with Japanese (all), we need manages.

E solves it all.

I would go for E too. My reasoning is as follows:

A) wrong becoz goes more like '.....american managers delegate responsibilities more freely in the US than the same managers if they were in Japan...'
B) is again wrong bcoz it in does not bring out clearly whether it is american managers in Japan or Japanese managers.
C) is wrong becoz the modifier modifies, which is supposed to modify the noun near it, modifies Japan, instead of modifying the managers
D) is wrong bcoz it guses a very broad term "Japanese" instead of being Japanese managers specifically.
E) is correct becoz the modifier correctly modifies japanese managers.

E it is and here is why.

E correctly compares managers in the US with Japanese managers.

A is wrong because they occurs twice and donâ€™t have a clear referent
B is wrong because it compares managers in the US with â€œin Japanâ€
