97. Although the coordination of monetary policy can help facilitate the orderly financing of existing imbalances, it is unlikely that its effect on their size is significant in the absence of an appropriate fiscal adjustment.
(A) it is unlikely that its effect on their size is significant
(B) it is unlikely that the size of their effect would be significant
(C) affecting their sizes are not likely to be significant
(D) the significance of their effect on its size is unlikely
(E) its effect on their size is not likely to be significant

OA is E.
However, are the phrases "unlikely that" and "not likely to be" (in A and E) both correct? which is better?
I know that the problem in the question is other aspect, but this is my doubt.
Thanks!

Grammatically (If you check in dictionary) both the phrases are correct...
Unlikely actually means NOT LIKELY

well, both means same . Unlikely= not likely but in most of the cases we prefer writing unlikely to avoid wordiness but here option A is itself wordy and incorrect on tense parameters , hence we opt for E

Raghav,

Request you not to write your queries/answers/opinions in question window. It prevents ppl from analysing the question. The whole purpose of GMAT Club forum goes wasted by doing so.

It is unlikely - does not refer to anything. Apart from this A is wordy too..

ignore this question

because this contradict to a question in og, "educators are at fault"

A must be correct. if you read the question "educators are at fault" , you will agree with me
