I think its E.

Although the coordination of monetary policy can help facilitate the orderly financing of existing imbalances, its effect on their size is not likely to be significant in the absence of an appropriate fiscal adjustment.

Its the most || among all choices.

I was torn b/w B and E, but I will go with B, as it makes a prediction and uses my BELOVED "would"

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 (financing's or coordination's) effect on their (balances') size is significant OUT

(B) it is unlikely that the size of their (balances') effect would be significant MAY BE

(C) affecting their sizes (plural, but can't be as size here doesn't refer to countable noun) are not likely to be significant OUT

(D) the significance of their (balances') effect on its (logically, I assume that it refers to financing, since coordination of policy doesn't have the size) size is unlikely
Also starts with "although coordination of policy, the significance of their..." logically refers to policy, but has pronoun problem (policy is single, so should be "Significance of its effect")

(E) its (coordination or financing) effect on their size is not likely to be significant

Hmm... I wonder what does [...] size of effect [...] mean?

^ E ^

B, C and D are out as they change the meaning of the original sentence.

Between A and E, E is better as for ||lism. I feel that we need to start with "its effect" here.

will go with E.

"its" correctly refers to monetary policy ..... and hence corrects the modifier problem.

"their" refers to the existing imbalances.......

B/w A and E, i'll choose E because 'its' should be as close as possible to 'monetary policy'.

Will go with E

B, - incorrect - use of "it" is ambiguous

C, D - incorrect because the new independent clause must begin with a pronoun in order to correctly refer to the preceeding dependent clause.

A - incorrect -"its" in A is ambiguous, also the expletive "it " is not required in A which is making it wordy.

E - correct choice - "its" placed right after comma, thus more correctly refers to the coordination of monetary policy (subject of the sentence)
