The intended meaning of the sentence is that by next month Mrs Jones will be the mayor .

Will have been is used to describe an event which started at some point and will end in the future.
could have been changes the meaning
option C is correct as mayor is used as a stand alone term .

We use capital letters mainly for the first letter of sentences, names, days and months as well as for some abbreviations. The difference between B and D is the "mayor"

you are right raimundo1991
it goes without saying

but do you think GMAC is really testing issues like 'usage of capital letters' in GMAT?
Never seen this in test before
