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
