Close between A & D.

Will go with D......

A - 53% is not Most

D - Some would still do

I think it is A. Most by dictionary means ' greatest in number'. That makes 53% most.

Not D because a company might not be having income from 10 or more coutries. The 38 $100 mn companies, may each be getting foreign investment from a diff country, making the last statement of the given paragraph true. Yet, this doesn't make answer choice D correct
