will go with D.
If u pick simple answers than its easier to look at the problem
Total taxable income = 100\$
Contribution from more 100mil\$ of income = 53\$ ------a
Contribution from 10 or more countries = 63\$ ----------b
Its clear (63 + 53) < 100
Thus there is an overlap between a & b, which is stated in D.
Praet kindly let me know of correct answer, so that i am clear whether this approach (recently discovered) is correct.

E cant be right. Most? How much is most? We know that there is overlap between the income from 10 or more countries and income over \$100mm

This is a tough question. I wonder what the source is.
