It should be read like this...

Developing nations in various parts of the world have amassed \$700 billion in debts; the solvency of some of the worldâ€™s largest multinational banks is at stake should a significant number of these debts be repudiated

E is just plain wrong.
B and C tries to make the subject plural...

between A and D, I am picking A but It could be D also,

I am not sure....

A it is.

This is a conditional sentence with conditional clause inside the main clause. To make it even more complicated the conditional clause has an inversion. Only A satisfies the rules of Conditionals, and keeps the right subject-verb agreement.
