Why not option E?
It is only one play or just one broadcast. usually are several plays.

Should be A.
Broadcast NOT broadcasts.
Play NOT plays.
Many Radio listeners NOT a radio listener.
IMO A

E is Incorrect since WAR OF THE WORLDS is one single play and the author is talking about an instance when MANY LISTENERS were tuned to this play only.

I agree with the correct answer choice being A, however, to me, the OS sounds weird, especially the part before the first comma.

Is the sentence itself correct?

.
Option A is correct because-
The correct idiom is used - 'believed that'
The Play and War singular
Play and broadcast are singular
In other options you can find differences
