97. 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.

Not sure if the pronoun is referring to co-ordination of monetory policy or to existing imbalances.

E?

I'd choose (E) too, but would like to see somebody's explanation on this.

I would go with E.
Explanataions:
first of all, if you consider the above sentence in the parallel form, then the it should correspond to the monetary policy. (c and D are eliminated). The main subject is
monetary policy. So to be in parallel, B is also eliminated. We are left with A and E.
A is ok but redundant and ETS likes crisp and precise. So, the answer should be E.

Btw, whats OA?

I think GMAT likes the following idiom "likely to + verb"
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Actually, I'm not sure why (A) is not correct.


A has at least a couple of flaws in this sentence:

1. it...its... is redundant

2. the spread (positioning) between unlikely and significant subtlely alters the author's intended meaning. (E) stylistically and syntactically places ...not likely to be significant... in the clearest tone.

3. At face value, IMHO, based on empirical observations of 1000s of SCs :oops: , the GMAT tends to prefer not + adj over un+adj constructions.
