okay.

my choice is A.

because more than 50 million does the work of an adjective.

hence "the" should come in the sentence as it is referring to a particular population group.

"the turks"

for example-

"the brave turks" where brave is substituted in place of more than 50 million.

Hope this time i am correct

E would be correc correct if of the over 50 million.

if (C) is right then I will explain.

I think this question is not about the choice between although and despite

I think the answer is C
I belive that 'the' is superflous in choice A

No, it's not about "although" vs. "despite." It's about the definite article with the number of Turks. If the number is known, which I believe is the case, then the definite article should be used.

I had a similar question on a test some time ago. I chose an answer with "the" and was right.
