A. 37 percent of people think that Medicare will cover their long- term healthcare costs but it won‘t. -correct
B. 37 percent of people think that Medicare will cover their long-term healthcare costs and it won‘t. - we need a contrast here not an additional clause
C. 37 percent of people think Medicare would cover their long-term healthcare costs but it won‘t. - missing "That" eliminate this one
D. 37 percent of people think that Medicare will cover their long-term healthcare costs but they won‘t. - healthcare is singular and "they" is an incorrect pronoun in use here
E. 37 percent of people are thinking that Medicare will be covering their long-term healthcare costs but it won‘t.- missing "That" eliminate this one




we need a "that" after think so eliminate C,E

+1A

Here we need contrast, hence "but" is required not "and".
Since, think is in present tense , we need "would"
Also, here "it" refers to Medicare and hence need to be singular.

Hence OA - A
