I choose A.

B distorts the meaning of the sentence.

that, because of double-digit unemployment, could be a severe strain for

The boldfaced section indicates that the sole reason for the sever strain is double digit unemployment while the original sentence states that it is ONE of the two reasons.

OA anyone?!

IMO it's A.

According to some economists, Japan is in danger of plunging into a depression that, with double-digit unemployment, could severely strain a society that regards lifetime employment as a virtual right of citizenship.

Answer has to be A.

C, D and E are wrong, because we need a restrictive clause - that, to refer to an essential clause that follows. "That" refers to depression in the SC. C is wrong because "it" has no clear referent. D is wrong, because "and could be a clear strain.." doesn't clearly refer to any subject in particular. E has the same error

B is wrong as a pronoun/noun should appear after - because of double digit unemployment.

A is correct, because "that" refers to depression.

A is correct choice.
'could be a severe strain for a society' in B is awkward.
