i choose A

===========

after thinking for a while, i guess it should be D or E
two reasons make me choose D
1. "that" after "think" in D, no "that" in E
2. "would" indicates a sense of "possibility", which is redundant with "could" in E

IMO you need the word "think there" and repeating "power stations" is redundant, thus D

Anyone with the explanation of OA? Is "be" not extra with option D?

The problem with E is the structure of the sentence I think.

... but think IC [ the power stations would or could be made sufficiently safe in the future ] ...

How can we connect the IC with the sentence [ think in our case ] without a relative pronoun [ THAT in our case ] ?

If the second half was not a IC and a phrase instead , E would have been the correct pick.

I agree with E as well.

To me D has an ambiguous pronoun reference, something that E clears up.

Who can explain D over E?

"power stations" is redundant in E

Can someone explain when "be" is understood and when it is necessary? I usually get confused when it is understood and when it is required for parallelism.
