Needs to have "that". ABC are therefore ruled out. The only difference between D and E is recent vs latest. I'm not sure, but I think latest may be better, or "most recent".

So I'd pick (E).

I prefer D.
we should use that after believe.
A,B,C are eliminated.

Between D, and E, I prefer recent to latest.

I picked D over E, but can someone explain why latest is a better choicce than recent? I am sure there is a grammatical explanation for this.
