(A) likely to be at a severe disadvantage and is often unable to
(B) likely severely disadvantaged and often unable to
(C) liable to be severely disadvantaged and cannot often
(D) liable that he or she is at a severe disadvantage and cannot often
(E) at a severe disadvantage, often likely to be unable that he or she can

E is out because the "likely to be unable" is incorrect.
D is out because of "liable that" being the wrong idiom
C is out because there is no verb between likely and "severely disadvantaged"

That leaves A and C.
I was going to go with C but the "cannot often" looks wrong because this translates into "unable to often" which kind of changes the meaning.

So that leaves A.

Good question.

Yes, same reason. For double verification, the shortest one is definitely wrong and A is original. Answer = A
