A. in addition to its possibilities for preventing and inhibiting
B. in addition to its possibilities to prevent or inhibit
C. besides the possibility that it prevents and inhibits
D. besides the possible preventing and inhibiting of
E. besides possibly preventing or inhibiting
"D" - "possible preventing and inhibiting" is correct.
"E" : usage of adverb - "possibly" to modify gerundial noun - prventing and inhibiting is wrong.
moreover, "preveting and inhibting" go in parallel with "reducing" of non-underlined part. So "B" and "C" out.
"A" - "possibilities for preventing and inhibiting" is wrong in the given context against "possible preventing and inhibiting"
