(C) with double-digit unemployment, and it could severely strain
(D) with double-digit unemployment and could be a severe strain
(E) with double-digit unemployment and could severely strain

A is my choice.
C is not the choice due to the ambiguous "it" .
D is wrong because " strain" , as a noun here, should have a certain preposition as it's right followed by other noun " a society".
E is out because the subject of " could severely strain" here seems to be " Japan" , not "depression".
B:" strain for" sounds unidiomatic.
