The minimum p is achieved when as many members as possible choose 3 out of 4 options.

If    20% choose all but option 1,
and a different 20% choose all but option 2,
and a different 20% choose all but option 3,
and a different 20% choose all but option 4,

then that leaves 20% of the members that chose all options.

The minimum p is therefore 20%.  Final answer.
