Hi srikanth9502 ,

I am happy to answer.

Words such as expected and would never go together as they cause redundancy issue.

When I am already saying expected, that means its not a confirmation. So, by using would I cannot again create a degree of possibility.

hence, option A and B are straight out.

Except C, D and E have ||ism issue.

Hence, C is correct.

Does that make sense?

But if you use "will", doesn't it seem to convey the meaning that you are very much certain about that upcoming event?

Hi srikanth9502 ,

That is the catch here. Using will + expected nullify the effect of certainty.

But using Would+expected makes it redundant.

Does that make sense?

I think "will" is used when we need to show future event.
and "would" is used to show future events in past eg. "He said, he would go to the temple."
But here the sentence says "Even if the recession plays out as expected........."
Plays here convey present tense and therefore will is used.

C)will continue to sour, eroding banks' profits and hampering
D)will continue to sour, eroding banks' profits and to hamper
E)will continue to sour, to erode banks' profits, and to hamper

Using ||lism thingy i was able to pick the right answer, but can anyone tell me that "their" in the above question refers to what ? :/
