The last line of the question prompt is this.
"They argue that the new tests serve to reduce the need for tests on live animals."
You have to look at options which serves the purpose to reduce the need of testing on animals. You don't have to look out for options such a cost reduction etc. Now approach the choices. You will stuck between D and E. In D, researchers believe that fewer tests will be needed (BUT STILL NEEDED). Reduction in number of tests is not what we are looking for but the reduce the need for animal testing. E conveys this perfectly so the right answer.
