Between A and B i chose A, because it looks better. On the other, B is more clear, because states the cause of future difficulties. OA?

(C) with double-digit unemployment, and it could severely strain -. it is not reqd
(D) with double-digit unemployment and could be a severe strain -> japan is not strain
(E) with double-digit unemployment and could severely strain -> japan dos not strain but depression does

Thanks

That could severly strain -> straining something else ,hence that refers to subject

that could be a strain ... something is strain!!this is an object or may be a subject
severly strain -> severely is an adverb modifying strain and strain is a verb

severe strain -> strain is a noun and severe is adjective modyfying the same !!!
