How E can be the answer because it talks about sending a new satellite, this is not mentioned in the argument.
The question seems to be about a plan. Then, to weaken the argument or the plan, ones need to pick up an option that weaken the original plan or argument, not show how an alternative is better than the original argument or a plan.

Now, in this question, E is the answer. "without repair, the satellite will malfunction" indicates an assumption that either a new satellite is launched, or the old satellite will be repaired. This is the key here because it connects the original argument with the launching new satellite.

Interesting...everyone says A is irrelevant. I actually think A is a fairly close one to E.

Using POE, test takers can choose E.
Veritas, beatgmat, OG all use this question.
The pattern in this question turns out to be the pattern of an assumption question that"the argument fails to consider any other possibility for satellites".
