it is E. A correct idiom is "to diminish the possibility of having an economy free of inflation"

I'd vote for C.

For the begining of the asked chunk: I think that it should be the active form.
At the end of that chunk: of having is correct. :wink:

I chose "C" as well.. :cry:


Thought that there was a parallelism:

C: "could seriously impact...and severly impede..." (seemed ok)

E: "could have a serious impact...and severly diminish..." (seems that the paralllism is not being respected)


Does anybody know why E is correct then? Is there a parallelism at all?

(A) be a serious impact to industrialized nations and severely diminish the possibility to have
(B) seriously impact on industrialized nations and severely impede the possibility to have
(C) seriously impact on industrialized nations and severely impede the possibility of having
(D) have a serious impact on industrialized nations and severely impede the possibility to have
(E) have a serious impact on industrialized nations and severely diminish the possibility of having


(A) is wrong because something is an impact on (or upon), not an impact to.
(B) "The possibility to" is wrong - needs to be "the possibility of" + -ing word. Also, "impact on" is not proper grammar.
(C) "Impact on" again.
(D) Same as (B).
(E) is quite beautifully written.

Could have a serious impact and severely diminish

Parallelism is quite elegant...
