(E) seen is sports in which most of the participants are male and such sales in sports in which most of the participants are female has

IMO, E makes more sense. Correct idiomatic usage is - contrast in X and Y , not contrast in X over Y
Correct me, If I'm wrong.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

This question attempts to disguise a very simple grammatical mistake: is ‘contrast’ singular or plural? It is singular, therefore you have to use the word ‘has’, not ‘have’. The contrast has done something. That leaves choices D and E as possible answers. However, use of the word ‘favors’ in choice D slightly changes the meaning of the sentence. It should be a contrast between one thing and another. Choice D does not use the use the word ‘and’ and is therefore also incorrect for this reason. Choice E is the correct answer.
