The bank acknowledged that they are and will continue to experience difficulties as it attempts to deal with the precipitous fall of the dollar against the yen and the dislocations reflected in the stock market decline.

A they are and will continue to experience difficulties as it attempts
B they are and will continue to experience difficulties as they attempt
C it is and will continue to experience difficulties as it attempts
D it is experiencing and will continue to experience difficulties as they make an attempt
E its difficulties are likely to continue as it attempts

Having trouble accepting E as the answer. Doesn't it change the meaning of the sentence (the banks ARE and WILL continue to experience, however option E says likely to continue)
Can someone explain why E remains the best choice?

Errors in other options highlighted in RED, correct answer must be (E)

A they are and will continue to experience difficulties as it attempts
B they are and will continue to experience difficulties as they attempt
C it is and will continue to experience difficulties as it attempts
D it is experiencing and will continue to experience difficulties as they make an attempt
E its difficulties are likely to continue as it attempts

Eliminate A,B, and D for pronoun issue.
Eliminate C for will (should be Would if in past tense).

Only possible answer is E. (it is okay to change the meaning slightly, other options have major issues )

They will continue .. ABC cut out straight.. Cause adding extra word need not to say" they are" and it is as it is already there with the word continue.. Who are they in D.. So only option left is E referring to bank

Bank is singular, so it should be referred by 'it' not 'they'.
Options A and B are out.
C is also incorrect as 'it is' before 'and' is incomplete.
D incorrectly refers bank as 'they'.
E uses the correct pronoun 'it' and is concise.
