After quite some thinking I chose A.

B) minority graduates > graduates who plan on participating? -changes meaning,
C) four times as likely as ?not idiomatic, if you could use somehow four time as many as it would be idiomatic,
D) it is four times more likely then other graduates will plan to practice ?doesn?t make sense
E) as likely than ?not idiomatic
