Although Ms. Bakara had previously emphasized that she could not speak for other Black people, she ventured to do so on this one occasion because she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would agree with her.
(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
I would choose D. the phrase "to do so" follows on correctly from the preceding phrase "Although Ms Bakara couldn't do X." The phrase "if not most" is the only one that makes sense in the context of the sentence. _________________
A : usage of "likely most" is unidiomatic.. (great..even I started using this word ))
B : Tense problem (should have).
C : doesnot fit in to the sentense. 'so speak on this...'
D : Answer
E : use of since. I guess, its a bit awkward. Also, use of 'believed...likely' is inapt. I guess, there is no need of likely 'coz belived it self is a assumption. (not sure abt this)
Also ,'that' shud be there.
Reasons: A : usage of "likely most" is unidiomatic.. (great..even I started using this word ))
I do agree that the answer is D. But, Krishna, Can you explain, "unidiomatic"?
and Ritesh, I still don't get what you mean by your answer to Pedro's question. (Likely most is not concise...
We need to contrast the number and "not" is always is a good fit...)
Likely most is wrong usage. It should be MOST LIKELY. LIKELY is an adverb, which can only be modified by an adverb.
and more, most are other adverbs which are comparitive and superlative form added to the adverbs. Although they can be used in pre-postitive or post-positive positions, but when used, they can change the meaning dramatically...
