hi everyone! I really need a native speaker to solve these "problems".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Third one:
-to succeed in life.....
A- is necessary a great deal of motivation
B- it is needed a great deal of motivation
C- there is a need of a great deal of motivation
D- a great deal of motivation is needed
here I went for the D but...what's the difference between D and B?

I hope sombody could clarify the answers to me. Thanks a lot!!!!!!

    A and B are not really grammatical.
    C is marginal, since we'd normally say, - there is a need for a great deal of motivation

    Even corrected, C is rathy wordy and abstract; hence D is best, all in all: grammatical, concise, and concrete.
