this should be a D.

All the others fall in the window of being audited since 1985, and having no mistakes found.

D

Agree with pmenon

we have two condition:
[X]who have been audited since 1985;
[Y]who were found to have made no mistakes in filing their returns during that audit.

Of the following people, who is MOST likely to be audited by the IRS?
(not[X]) or ([X] and not[Y])
only D satisfies.

I agree it's D.

The two things that incease you chances are having you last audit before 85 and mistakes. The only one that has either of these is D.
