Go for D.

"likely most" in A & B is incorrect.
"so speak on" in C is incorrect.

I prefer "if not most" in D to "even most" in E.

D for me too.

In E 'would likley agree' - would and likely is redundant.

Yes it is. OA is D.

I was torn between A and D. Is "if not most" an idiom?

(A) do so on this one occasion because she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would agree
(B) speak on this one occasion since she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would have agreed
(C) so speak on this one occasion due to her firmly believing that many minority people, even most, would likely agree
(D) do so on this one occasion because she firmly believed that many minority people, if not most, would agree
(E) do so on this one occasion since she firmly believed many minority people, and even most, would likely agree

(A) -- likely most is incorrect
(B) -- again 'likely most' is used here
(C) -- even most ? this option is incredible
(D) -- best of the lot here ! if not most is appropriately used in this option
(E) -- agin even most is not correct

I don't think if not most is an idiom. You just have to understand when to use it.

I agree that D reads well, but the problem is are we not changing the intention of the author.

In the question stem, the author says most minority people would agree. but answer D (grammatically correct) says many will but not most.

Need some experts to review this one, please.

The source of this question is 1000SC. Mostl experts recommend to stay away from 1000 series.
If not most makes the answer option gramatically correct but renders no meaning per se.
