Wrong use of "that" as a pronoun for "managers" eliminate B & D

For parallelism, "are" is necessary (Assertive managers are ..... more than (other???) managers are), so eliminate C

We are left with A and E (which I found troublesome).

Option A has a couple of issues (more effectively than are managers who use compromise, sharing and searching for solutions)
1. the parallelism for the objects following "use". it should be "use compromising, sharing and searching"
2.the bigger issue is the wording: who "use compromise"/ "use sharing"/ "use searching" are redundant. It should be who compromise, share and search.

Option E solve these issue, in addition to providing better parallelism example as "Assertive managers are ..... more than compromising managers"

I have a doubt. Is the sentence - more likely to ..... more effectively ... correct? I eliminated all the options that had "more effectively" because it appears redundant.
