    Hi,
    Four million dollars is enough to build a nice house.
    Millions of dollars are spent on the war.

    Re: which is right?

    Of those four, D is the only acceptable one. But if you want to specify a number, then it should be 'Four million[no s]':

    Four million dollars will go into the building of the museum.
