OA is B. We're trying to compare two items: "as infrequently as..." or "as daily as"...

I don't think OA is correct. I will rather categorize this as one of the those dubious questions.

Reason: We always use "as (adjective) as" and "infrequently" is an adverb not an adjective.

I would appreciate any counter-argument.
