D might be the answer. Reasons:

Since the first part of the sentense is a modifier, hence, the subject i.e. "it is nearly four times as likely as" should come first.
Hence, we are left with D and E.
Out of the two, D is more accurate 'coz E uses "as likely...than", which is odd.

Per the SC1000 answer is C...

But, I am not really sure why.

Is it because "likely..to verb" is a idiom?

A is wrong...you can't likely...in something
B is wrong...you can't likely....who someting
C is my answer...likely...to do something
D....rather isn't used correctly here
E you could maybe make a case for but I feel there is something wrong here. I just can't place it

Between A and C, C for two reasons:
1. As - as : idiomatic
2. ing not favoured on the GMAT.

Its very close though.

I vote for A. There are too many prepositions that are distractions. If you read without the prepositions A is very clear choice. According to a suvery ... minority students... are more likely .... to practice ... in certain areas.
