(E) if a significant number of these debts will be repudiated, is


the subject is the solvency, so verb be must be singular, B and C are out.
D and E use wrong tenses for if-clause. I choose A. Should in A also means if

you may have a glance at this link http://www.edict.com.hk/vlc/clauses . It's a comprehensive source of all kinds of clauses.

Another one for A

"at stake....is" the subject and verb are in agreement.
The clause in E, "...debts will be repudiated..." does not agree with the present tense "stake".

my pick was naturally A too
however, can someone explain the problem with D ? just wordy or something is grammatically wrong ?

D is wrong as it uses wrong tenses for verbs of the if clause.
