Who is speaking from experience? - "I"- hence (A) and (D) out.

What is alluring my business partners? - The promise of huge profits - hence (B) and (C) out.

(B) distorts the intended meaning and (C) grammatically correct but in comparison to elegant - (E) is not good enough.

(A) the promise of huge profits was alluring to some of my business partners I believe.

(C) I believe alluring to some of my business partners was the promise of huge profits

(D) it is my belief that the promise of huge profits allured some of my business partners

(E) I believe that the promise of huge profits was alluring to some of my business partners

E is the answer
