International sporting events need not be fiscal disasters, the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates that fact.
(A) the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates that fact
(B) for example, the 1992 Olympic Games were financially successful
(C) like the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates

(E) as the financial success of the 1992 Olympic Games demonstrates

I would go for E. Unfortunately, I don't think I am able to explain it, but it feels right.

Eventhough choice A looks a bit awkward, I think it is still the best choice. What is the OA please?

E.
D looked correct but at abstract level, is not a complete senence.
A and B are trying to comibine two sentences with a mere comma(,).

I could not have explained had I not known the OA ans â€“ E. I looked into different uses of â€˜asâ€™
And found a reference on rules to use â€˜asâ€™. When used as follows:
[b]as meaning â€œbecauseâ€
