I'd go with E

C, D are just awkward.
A, B have may and it's just too wordy. Word "possible" eliminates word may in this case.

What is the OA?

Use of 'may' become redundant since possible has already been used. So, A,B and C are out.
between d & e, e is better.

Excellent explanations. Thanks mates.

I just want to point out in this example that POSSIBLE and MAY shouldn't go together. Just something to remember. :wink:

The answer is E.

As the second may is redundant because of the "possible".

Straight E. Possible and May redundant. Alertness is the key once again.
