A it is.

D makes the sentence incomplete.

Could you provide explanation for the choices ? I know the answer so instead of saying A,B,C,D and E please provide the logic and rules behind it. I wrote the question here to learn what was my mistake and why this mistake arised.

I also think the answer is A. This is a construction that follows the "A but B" format, which typically requires that A and B be parallel in structure. Looking at the choices:

(A) in the stratosphere - correctly contrasts with 'at the ground level'
(B) in the stratosphere, in which - in which is redundant, already contains 'in'
(C) it is in the stratosphere in which - distorts meaning, awkward
(D) in the stratosphere where - breaks parallelism, 'where' redundant
(E) it is in the stratosphere and - distorts meaning, breaks parallelism

(A) in the stratosphere
(B) in the stratosphere, in which
(C) it is in the stratosphere in which
(D) in the stratosphere where
(E) it is in the stratosphere and


B, C and E require the additional verb.e.g.
In my class, Kate is intelligent, but in another class in which/where there are other bright students, she is not noticeable. The example above must have the similar structure to be right. E is wordy. So A remains correct.
