Based on examination of options we can straightaway eliminate (B) and (E) - One must be followed by One/One's...

Among A , C and D - I would like to follow vijayshree's approach - The before Superlative form which brings down straight to (D)...


IMO (D)

A, B & E- are straightaway out.

"In order to be most successful in the financial marketplace, SOMETIMES ONE should......"
It should rather be:
"In order to be most successful in the financial marketplace, ONE should sometimes..."

Between C and D, I realise now that D is indeed the OA when I read it the option D:

In the financial marketplace, sometimes one needs to leave one's position of stability in order to be the most successful GUY.

As pointed out earlier, a superlative form requires "THE".

simple: "one" cannot be mixed with another pronoun (i.e. their, his, her, etc.).

also, need "the" before "most successful".
