I am so confused on this one. I think the size is refering to the existing imbalances.

I will go with C.

what is the OA?

The OA is E.

it is talking about the effect of monetary policy on existing imbalances
B-falsely uses "their" to refer to monetary policy
C-should be "is"
D-changes meaning of the sentence. here it talks about the effect of existing imbalances on monetary policy.
A-"is" expresses certainty
E is best

I don't quite understand why A is wrong here? Can someone elaborate?

(A) it is unlikely that its effect on their size is significant
-----> "sizes" needs to be plural
(B) it is unlikely that the size of their effect would be significant
-----> changes the original meaning
(C) affecting their sizes are not likely to be significant
NOTE: Affect/ effect :
Affect:
+as a noun: means "emotion"
+as a verb : means "to influence, to touch the feeling of someone"

Effect:
+ as a noun: means " result or consequence of an action"
+as a verb: means " to bring about or to accomplish"

----> here, it should be " effect"
(D) the significance of their effect on its size is unlikely
------> "their" must be" it" , "its" must be " their" and "size" must be " sizes"

(E) its effect on their size is not likely to be significant
-----> fine!

E it is.
