Here its more a hypothetical situation, hence should will not fit. Thus A,B and C can be eliminated. Would is used to denote Future of the past, hence D can be eliminated. Hence the one that remains is E.

OK whats wrong with D and E

I know this SC is testing for conditionals:
-if X happens, Y will happen
-Y occurs if X occurs.

My problem is I dont how its applied in A and why its wrong in D and E.

D seems unnecessarily wordy to me and E) has "will be"

I think the " would be" in D is incorrect.

OA is A.

stake - singular, are - plural
=>B,C are OUT

In D: "would be " is incorrect. It violates the format -if X occurs, Y will occur
In E: "will be" is incorrect. It violates the format -if X occurs, Y will occur

A wins.
