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

Go for D.

"likely most" in A & B is incorrect.
"so speak on" in C is incorrect.

I prefer "if not most" in D to "even most" in E.

D for me too.

In E 'would likley agree' - would and likely is redundant.

Yes it is. OA is D.

I was torn between A and D. Is "if not most" an idiom?

(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

(A) -- likely most is incorrect
(B) -- again 'likely most' is used here
(C) -- even most ? this option is incredible
(D) -- best of the lot here ! if not most is appropriately used in this option
(E) -- agin even most is not correct

I don't think if not most is an idiom. You just have to understand when to use it.

But in D, it says 'if not most' where as in original sentence it is 'likely most'. Doesn't it change the meaning itself?

(A) do so on this one occasion because she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would agree
likely can be an adjective or an adverb, and think there is some ambiguity as to what it is modifying: people or the verb agree. I think this works but option d is better.

(B) speak on this one occasion since she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would have agreed
should use "do so"

(C) so speak on this one occasion due to her firmly believing that many minority people, even most, would likely agree
should use "do so"

(D) do so on this one occasion because she firmly believed that many minority people, if not most, would agree
correct, if unambiguously modifies people

(E) do so on this one occasion since she firmly believed many minority people, and even most, would likely agree
should use "beleive that"

I agree that D reads well, but the problem is are we not changing the intention of the author.

In the question stem, the author says most minority people would agree. but answer D (grammatically correct) says many will but not most.

Need some experts to review this one, please.

The source of this question is 1000SC. Mostl experts recommend to stay away from 1000 series.
If not most makes the answer option gramatically correct but renders no meaning per se.
