Going with C.
I think it should be ' large number of people'.

Will go with D. amount of people is unidiomatic it should be number of people. Hence A/B/E are out.
C is awkward with so hopefully with. D is clear and concise

I will go with C.

I still have some questions.
1) what does 'it' in D refers to.
2) what is verb in underlined part of C.

i know this are very basic questions.
Hopefully is a adverb and it should modify verb.
