(A) do so on this one occasion because she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would agree( likely most doesn't bring the intended contrast)

(B) speak on this one occasion since she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would have agreed( would have is not correct tense)

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

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

(E) do so on this one occasion since she firmly believed many minority people, and even most, would likely agree( would and likely are redundant)

Will go with choice D.

Thanks

+1 for (D) for the highlighted errors in other options...

Isn't "if not most" a change in meaning? She expects "most of them" to agree, but if you add if not most, isn't it saying she doesn't expect most of them to agree?

I think OA is C.

Do so refers to “she could not speak”, which is not what she did. The options left are b & c. In case of option b “would have agreed” tense is wrong so c is the right answer.

As far I see, 'if not most' is the antithesis of 'likely most.' But this topic is from the 1000 series and there is no accountability for that series.
