Thanks :)

That could severly strain -> straining something else ,hence that refers to subject

that could be a strain ... something is strain!!this is an object or may be a subject
severly strain -> severely is an adverb modifying strain and strain is a verb

severe strain -> strain is a noun and severe is adjective modyfying the same !!!
