Paul,

As you underlined it for another questions, is it not to much to have two relative pronouns that in the same phrase ??

Could someone correct my POE ?

E "could severely" is related to Japan not no depression
D same as E
C "it" is unclear...
B causal phrase is not clear and linked to nothing (btw is there always a noun a causal phrase must be related to ?)
A correct

So that means every time a sentence is inside two commas, I can exclude that part and should then read the sentence. If the sentence then appears right,it is a possible correct answer.

I usually go by this approach but wanted be sure ...so am asking you guyz.

A for me.[/quote]

If we substract the sentence inside commas Newkid, should we also consider B as a possible answer ?

IMO, yes. A and B are final. A beats B in the meaning. B sounds like depression is causing a strain because of unemployement. Whereas the original meaning is "along with".

Yes, for all relative clauses - which starts with who/that/which etc.

Yes, the first that refers to depression and the second to society.
