D
Explanation:  D) The "white-water rapids" metaphor sees the organization as a small raft being tossed on an unending series of white-water rapids, being buffeted and nearly capsizing at each step of the journey. This makes "a small raft on a raging river" the correct response and eliminates the two choices regarding ships because they match the organization with a ship, not a raft. It rules out "a small raft on a calm river" because it characterizes the water as calm instead of raging.
