My answer is A. The option is using correct idiom "so...that..".

B. Out for using incorrect idiom "so..., so that"
C. Incorrect idiom
D. Correct idiom use "such .... that...". But option D is wordy as compared to option A. I would prefer the use of adjective "abundant" in option A, rather then use of noun "the abundance" in option D.
E. Incorrect idiom. The correct idiom should be "such .... that...".
