We know that before the report it was
The report suggests that
X leads to Z and not Y.

(A) In cases where X occurs but Y does not, X is usually followed by Z.--- CORRECT, the answer choice clearly shows that X leads to Z because Y does not occur and still X is followed by Z.
(B) In cases where X occurs, followed by Y, Y is usually followed by Z.--- No information about whether X or Y leads to Z. Incorrect.
(C) In cases where Y occurs but X does not, Y is usually followed by Z.--- Incorrect, because the answer choice suggest Y leads to Z. But we want X leads to Z.
(D) In cases where Y occurs but Z does not, Y is usually preceded by X.---- Incorrect, because Only gives information that Y is preceded by X. Also implies that neither Y nor X leads to Z.
(E) In cases where Z occurs, it is usually preceded by X and Y.--- Again no info about which out of X or Y leads to Z.

A because we need to get Y out of the equation to prove Y ain't it
