B & C change meaning

D uses thier to singular coordination of X

A is wrong because it uses "is". we are talking future here. will be is a better form in A.

E uses correct idiom likely to be.

It should be E.

In gmat, expressions like "it is .....," "there are ........." are not considered correct. They are wordy. So this will avoid A, and B.
C and D are too wired.

E is the most clear and succint.

For me, It is unlikely that is not idiom in A and B
C use are, which is wrong
D the significance ....is unlikely. Unlikely can not stand alone
E stands out, and just fine
