my take is E. A, B and C are out because of "will". in D "because" and "So" are not properly used. correct me if i am wrong

The original sentence has "reason and .... because" this is redundant.
So eliminate A


C starts with "the reason" it should have a "that" before the second clause ex: The reason for his absence was that he was sick.
eliminate C

D has Because .... so unidiomatic eliminate D

Between B and E, I picked E because B seemed like a run on.

Came down to B or E. Decided on E because the choice was concise and active. Also, "..the reason being that" is awkward in choice B

I go for E as well, very crisp and concise. What's the OA?
