"You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law." These words are probably quite familiar to you (although hopefully, you've never had a police officer read them to you).

(A) does not work (because it is the same as the original sentence)
(B) has a random "it." You don't know if the word "it" refers to "the innovative computer and communications technology . . ." or the "era."
(C) is awkward and also lacks parallelism. It should at least read "was not dominated anymore by industry, but rather by information."
(D) is very simple and straightforward. That is actually a good sign that (D) is the correct answer. It is clear and doesn't have a random "it".
(E) is incorrect because the last part of the phrase should ready "dominated not by industry, but by information."
The correct answer is (D)
