A: Bank is singular
B: Payments are plural
C: No issues here
D: Expected by whom?
E: Meaning issue. Payments are due. Not payments will be due (seems like deadline never arrives).

My selection: Choice C.

The bank holds $3 billion in loans that are seriously delinquent or in such trouble that they do not expect payments when due.

(A) they do not expect payments when -- Pronoun issue -- they can't refer to singular bank
(B) it does not expect payments when it is -- Pronoun issue -- it can't refer to plural payments
(C) it does not expect payments to be made when they are -- Correct
(D) payments are not to be expected to be paid when -- redundant -- payment .. to be paid ; who expects payments -- emphasis is lost
(E) payments are not expected to be paid when they will be - same as D ; tense issue - payments are not expected and when they will be due should be in same tense

Answer C

The bank holds $3 billion in loans that are seriously delinquent or in such trouble that they do not expect payments when due.

(A) they do not expect payments when
(B) it does not expect payments when it is
(C) it does not expect payments to be made when they are
(D) payments are not to be expected to be paid when
(E) payments are not expected to be paid when they will be


D and E are eliminated because the active voice sentence C presents the idea and uses the correct pronoun "it" to refer to the bank.
