C, D and E can never be the correct ones..
I am confused between A and B.

Why B?

my take -

'will' should be used for future possibility
'would' should be used for past possibility

B is parallel and correct.

Can an expert elaborate on why B over A? Is 'would' not used for conditional? Since 'probably' indicates a doubtful mood, isn't usage of 'would' correct here?? Thank you.

"Probably" depicts an uncertain event. "Would" also does the same. Therefore using both ("probably would") is considered redundancy. "Probably will" is correct.

(You may also note that none of the options are correct because of faulty use of "due to" - should have been "because of".)
