(A) so despised that it was
(B) so despised to be
(C) so despised it had been
(D) despised enough that it was
(E) despised enough as to be


idiom: so X that Y
The weather was so humid that condensation accumulated on my car window.

that starts a restrictive clause so the tense needs to be the same.

Answer is A.

Correct idiom is : So X that Y
This one seems to be frequently tested. Each time this idiom is tested, you would find "X enough that" as one of the answer choice, which uses the wrong idiom.
