For me It´s D.

People who are neither a millionaire nor a top manager, are likely to read the Financial Forecaster, if reading the journal, would help them become a millionaire or a top manager.

ANALYZE THE QUESTION STEM:

The most difficult part of this question is the "question stem". I would paraphrase it like:

A reader who is neither a millionaire nor in top management would be most likely to act in accordance with the advertisement’s suggestion if he or she believes that....?

But What is "act in accordance with the advertisement suggestion". It means "you should subscribe FF now"

==> The question stem will be: A reader who is neither a millionaire nor in top management would subscribe FF if he or she believes that....

ANALYZE THE STIMULUS:

The advertisement' FACT: 1/3 subscribers to FF are millionaires, and over 1/2 are in top management.

Because the advertisement used the word "subscribers" in order to make a new reader believes that "he/she will be a millionaire or top management IF he/she reads FF".

This is exactly what a new reader believes, ==> so he/she would subscribe FF.

Hence, D is correct.

Hope that helps.
