E. The Prime Minister's forthright response refuted not only his image as a weak, indecisive leader created by media but also soared his popularity among the citizens.

According e-gmat, "his" cannot refer to "The Prime Minister", because "The Prime Minister's forthright response" is a "adjective+noun" combination.

It is a Possessive Noun and not Noun Adjective. Possessive Pronoun (his) can refer back to Possessive Noun.
