Sentence says that a million dollars is not worth now what it used to be in the past, now (B) follows that it may not be worth as much but it still is a threshold to determine whether you're rich. (A) states 'if that's all it takes' means if it is enough then there would be a lot of rich people, which does not go with the sentence. (C) states that it's no longer enough to put you at the top, in a way it is undermining the value of million dollars, but this is negated due to the use of 'but'. Hence, only (B) carries the sentence forward; option D is the correct choice.
