I would narrow it down between A & D, and would go with A, since for Chase to be accepted into Brown when he is in the entertainment industry, he must have been pre-approved.

Publishing doesn't have to be entertainment! I vote E; hollywood movies most certainly are entertainment.

A would have been the answer if asked for an explanation for the paradoxy . Though he is a publishing magnate , still got into Brown.Explain how ?

But here we have to conclude , and assuming publishing magnate doesnt mean to be associated with entertainment industry ,Chase needs to satisfy two thng to get into Brown.
1. He shd have 10 million. Satisfied
2. Not associated with Entertainment industry .

Since he is in brown means he satisfied both the above cond., there fore , he was never asscoaited with entertainmnet industry .
Finanicng is a subset of connections with entertainment industry and thus needs to be ruled out.
So E it is.
