Although Ms. Bakara had previously emphasized that she could not speak for other Black people, she ventured to do so on this one occasion because she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would agree with her.

(A) do so on this one occasion because she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would agree
(B) speak on this one occasion since she firmly believed that many minority people, likely most, would have agreed
(C) so speak on this one occasion due to her firmly believing that many minority people, even most, would likely agree
(D) do so on this one occasion because she firmly believed that many minority people, if not most, would agree
(E) do so on this one occasion since she firmly believed many minority people, and even most, would likely agree

I think i shall concur with praveen and opt for A. D slightly changes the meaning of the sentence.

Thanks

A or D?
Interesting question....Yes, the meaning changes.

I think,E cannot be the answer.
Here is an observation on GMAT.
Because is prefered over since and being.

(less preferred) being < since < because

I will go with A.
In E there is "IF" and "WOULD" so it must have "were"...thats why i am eliminating D.
I don't knw whtr it is a common rule . but my tutor told me this .... and till now i am practising IF-WOULD-WERE rule....

I am still confused b/w A and D. can someone explain why LIKELY is wrong here?

E is out cause of SINCE; we need BECAUSE here.
