+1 for D.

(A) do so at the press conference because she thought that many women, likely most, would appreciate --> awkward

(B) talk at the press conference since she thought that many women, likely most, would have appreciated --> "Do so" preferred

(C) so talk at the press conference due to her thinking that many women, even most, would likely appreciate --> "Do so" preferred

(D) do so at the press conference because she thought that many women, if not most, would appreciate --> Correct, rectifies diction error and conveys intended meaning

(E) do so at the press conference since she thought many women, and even most, would likely appreciate --> awkward

Hence, D.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Likely most’ is incorrect idiomatically. Eliminate A and B. ‘To so talk’ in C is also incorrect idiomatically. ‘Due to’ in C is also incorrect. ‘Due to’ can only be used as a replacement for ‘attributable to’. For example, ‘the low level of the lakes is due to the lack of rain’. ‘Would likely appreciate’ in C and E is also incorrect idiomatically. D is correct.
