You meant “Why ARE A and B wrong?” 🙂

Also, again you have not provided the OA and asked the entire explanation in the subject of the thread. May I request you put a few words in the subject line and actually ask the specific query while posting the entire question? Makes life easier.

A, B-> “it” cannot be used for either “you” or “one”. Nor can it be used to refer to the entire reason.

A, E -> “that of the lowest” is incorrect; we just need “lowest price” not “that of” the lowest price.

D -> makes it a meaning issue. We assume the lowest will be prominently advertised – not the highest.
