Bump--looking for explanations that would help me understand why I should rule out the other choices...

Specifically, what rules out choices D and E and why is "A" considered the clear answer?

A is best. The rest are lacking either in clarity or conciseness.

A it is. A word of caution though. When As is used in the beginning of a sentence to show a cause-effect relationship, a comma should separate the cause from the effect. Else it would mean that the cause and the effect happened at the same time.

I dont think this is a cause & effect relationship.

As X occurs, Y happens shows two concurrent actions.

True. Thanks for pointing that out. Nevertheless caution should be exercised. You have to be absolutely certain that both are happening at the same time. Else you risk having ambiguity in the sentence.

The text in bold is an adverbial clause.

Original stmt is right.

A
