C (4min 35s)

used POE: (A), (B) and (D) are out after a glance through the answers as
(B) speaks abt. wealthy individuals...no where mentioned
(A) changes the problem statement
(D) might not be true

coming to (E)--> even this cannot be concluded from the given statements as it is very much possible that the 38 companies which have more than 100 million revenue get their income from just one foreign country.

Therefore concluded with C

This diagram helped to clarify things. The answer is D.

A - wrong: "All of the income earned by corporations with net income of more than $100 mln, came from foreign sources!"
The whole circle represents corporations with income ONLY from foreign sources

B - wrong: out of scope. We're talking about corporations, not wealthy individuals!

C - wrong: the stem addresses 'all taxable income from FOREIGN sources', not simply 'all taxable income'

E - wrong: the catch is "MOST". We could construct an example where only a small share [not most] of the 200 returns was made by the 38 corporations.
