Correct answer: E

(A) A teacher cannot be effective unless he or she retains the respect of students. Not talking about the effectiveness.

(B) Students respect honesty above all else. Above all else is extreme

(C) Students’ respect for a teacher is independent of the amount of knowledge they attribute to that teacher. Not talking about the amount of knowledge.

(D) Teachers are able to tell when students respect them. Out of scope

(E) Students lose respect for teachers whenever they sense that the teachers are trying to hide their ignorance. Correct

IMO
Contenders here are C and E.

Negating C doesn't make the conclusion fall apart and Negating E weakens the Conclusion.Hence, E is the Answer.

Kudos if this helps!

E is correct as it takes care of both the statements mentioned before.
Teacher's ignorance and students sense.
