For questions like this one I use "CLUE WORD" approach rather than spend too much precious exam time to understand the whole sentence however this is not very difficult question:

Clue words: "Hopefully" and "number or amount"

Hopefully - is almost always (99.99% of cases) incorrect in gmat SC. It eliminates ABC.
Number/Amount - For people, which is count noun, number is used not amount. It eliminates E.

D remains.

Solved in less than 5 seconds. I saved 1.95 minuets for other complex RC/CR problems.

+1 for D.

As stated above, hopefully, mercifully are almost always wrong in GMAT SC's.
