(B) that, because of double-digit unemployment, could be a severe strain for
"because of double-digit unemployment" is unclear, "be a severe strain for" is wordier

(C) with double-digit unemployment, and it could severely strain
Japan is in danger of plunging into a depression and it (meaning Japan) could severely strain a society ...

(D) with double-digit unemployment and could be a severe strain
Japan is in danger of plunging into a depression and could be a severe strain

I am still a little confused because i thought that the unemployment would drain Japan whereas the "A" crowd says it is the Depression.
