I think the original is fine

(A) clearly says that depression could strain society
(B) seems wordy, "because" necessary?
(C) it refers to unemployment or depression?
(D) extra info about unemployment should be set off by commas
(E) same as D

So A?

I would vote for B because it clearly says that the depression, because of the double digit unemployment - could cause severe strain

A -incorrect because it gives the feeling that the depresstion along with double digit unemployment could cause severe strain

Pick A too.

In B: "X could be a strain for Y" seems awkward.
"X could severly strain Y" more concise and conveys the same meanning.

Yeah A for me too ... that,...,could strain ...makes sense ... C,D,E are anyway out ... and is unnecessary .... between A& B ..A makes the sentence active .. Thus A.

I was stuck between A & E. I went with E as A felt too wordy. Anyone has a better explanation for not going with A?

can someone help explaining why C) is incorrect?

i thought with double-digit unemployment describes depression just fine, and it refers to depression. Am I missing something? Thanks.

Hey , in the choice E, it sounds like, Japan along with the double digit unemployment is plunging into depression, because of the conjunction 'with' between japan and unemployment
