e) Despite the fact that about 99 percent of over 50 million

Difference between "the more than 50 million" and "more than 50 million" is previous one gives definite value but latter one doesn't.

Argument wants to convey the meaning that 99 % for 50 million people. So correct option is A.

(A) implies a percentage of the entire population (more than 50 mn Turks), while (B) and (C) have an ambiguity regarding the population (the reference is to a sampling of 50 mn Turks out of the entire population - which may be anything).

Ummm... I wonder if that made any sense.

I vote for (A).
