Since children who undergo preschool education have been proven to be less liable to need remedial programs later, preschool education programs are demonstrably cost effective.

(A) been proven to be less liable
(B) proved themselves not as liable
(C) proved to be less likely
(D) proven to be less liable
(E) proven themselves not as likely

Split: liable and likely
Idiom: Less likely to do something
Between C and E. It lacks "as" in the later.

I think, since children who undergo preschool education have been proven to be less liable to need remedial programs later, preschool education programs are demonstrably cost effective, this is correct statement.

I think , no one has proved the fact for the students that they are less likely to need remedial programs later
So , passive form is not necessary
Students proved the point and hence a conclusion can be drawn. This is only expressed it we write the sentence like -

Since children who undergo preschool education have proved to be less likely to need remedial programs later, preschool education programs are demonstrably cost effective.

Re: Since children who undergo preschool education have been proven to be [#permalink]
There’s a 3:2 split between ‘likely’ and ‘liable’. Since ‘liable’ carries more negative connotations and this sentence has a positive bent, I think likely should be used. So now the choice is between C and E. E is wordy and convoluted so C is the better choice.
