In this correctly written sentence, parallel subordinate clauses are followed by a main clause.
These parallel subordinate clauses are both introduced by that: that there is ... and that the government. . .

A -> Correct. In this sentence, the repetition of that to introduce two subordinate clauses makes the construction parallel and correct.
B -> That is omitted. The sense of the sentence is distorted by the omission of may. the phrase agreement . . . to the fact is awkward.
C ->That is omitted, and the sense of the sentence is distorted by the omission of may.
D -> That is omitted.
E -> Using two independent clauses separated only by a comma creates a run-on sentence, and the sense of the sentence is distorted by
the omission of may.

A. seems ok. agree that....However shows contrast between 1st and 2nd clause
B. agreement to the fact...fact is not followed by that...
C. voters agree....agree should follow that.
D. agree should be followed by that
E. It should show a contrast .....as the second clause it is difficult....should be a contrast to the first one.

(A) However much United States voters may agree that
(B) Despite the agreement among United States voters to the fact
(C) Although United States voters agree
(D) Even though United States voters may agree
(E) There is agreement among United States voters that

I have a doubt about the OA.
OA is A but in A, "much US voters.." is used. I think much is wong as the voters can be counted there should be many or most.... Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks
