Tough one...

'an one-hundred...' is incorrect, an article 'a' is needed here, A,B - Out
'today's game which determined the championship' is redundant, D- Out
I'm confused between C and E, but the the first seems to be more concise, though slightly changes meaning...

Between C & E

C

If you look closely, C & E are the same except for "Needless to say" in E. Its better to "Keep is Short & Simple", so went with C

use of 'an' before one-hundred is incorrect. (using a or an depends on the sound that begins the next word, not just on the fact that next word begins with a vowel. e.g "an hour", "a university")

game which determined the championship is redundant.

so A, B , D are out.

IMO 'Needless to say' should be either followed by a comma or by "that". => E is incorrect.

which is either a noun modifier or just a pronoun ( format: preposition -which e.g. house in which i live)

symptoms as noun modifier are ", which" and just pronoun ( prep-which)

here it follows neither ..so eliminate all "which" related options

Needless to say, as its says, is actually needless..believe it..common

C
