I am so confused on this one. I think the size is refering to the existing imbalances.

I will go with C.

what is the OA?

The OA is E.

it is talking about the effect of monetary policy on existing imbalances
B-falsely uses "their" to refer to monetary policy
C-should be "is"
D-changes meaning of the sentence. here it talks about the effect of existing imbalances on monetary policy.
A-"is" expresses certainty
E is best

I don't quite understand why A is wrong here? Can someone elaborate?

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
-----> "sizes" needs to be plural
(B) it is unlikely that the size of their effect would be significant
-----> changes the original meaning
(C) affecting their sizes are not likely to be significant
NOTE: Affect/ effect :
Affect:
+as a noun: means "emotion"
+as a verb : means "to influence, to touch the feeling of someone"

Effect:
+ as a noun: means " result or consequence of an action"
+as a verb: means " to bring about or to accomplish"

----> here, it should be " effect"
(D) the significance of their effect on its size is unlikely
------> "their" must be" it" , "its" must be " their" and "size" must be " sizes"

(E) its effect on their size is not likely to be significant
-----> fine!

E it is.
