Thanks for the question! We know that (E) is wrong because it’s not necessarily true that societies have become more centralized as technology has improved. We know that technological improvements will enable food production to increase, but that doesn’t mean that there have to be actual increases in food production. It’s possible that increases in food production stay negligible, in which case societies don’t need to become more centralized to coordinate factors in the production of food. Thus, (E) is not something that can be properly inferred from the passage. It is completely possible for societies to not centralize, even with improving technology, under the logic of the stimulus.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask any further questions that you might have.
