I came to this question with following assumption:
Installing measures to avoid radiation will reduce the chances of cancer. But what about the cases where radiation has already caused damage . Here author is believing even if radiation has caused damage before taking measures, we have strong technology which can detect those symptoms. So technology is already helping us to exclude cases caused before the employment of safety measures. Hence, the sole goal is 'decrease of cases by 80% ' which will be achieved by safety measures.
Negation of this option questions the conclusion.

I picked (E) but answer should be, without a doubt, (A).
If we read the conclusion, it states that the number of incidence will decrease in 6 months.
And (A) states that the prevailing technology is powerful enough to diagnose cancer in 6 months or less.
Hence, using technology, the total number of incidence of cancer can be figured out.
Without the support of technology we can not figure out the number of incidence of cancer and hence will never figure out whether the number decreased or not.
