C is not answer. Because combination of possibly and wiould in one sebtence is redundant. Both refer that may or may not happen condition.

Always use present and future together, would is used to show something which may happen with reference to an event already happened.
If he had finished his lunch, he would've gone out to play

Because of his closed head injury, Dr. Connors has not been able to practice and possibly never will be able to practice medicine again.

Must be (E) for correct parallel structure...

I also marked C as the answer as it trumps E in terms of concision.
However, C used the verb tense would which makes it incorrect.
Future tense "will" is correct.
