Choice A is eliminated because it does not refer to anything, it would need to be 'they' because the nouns preceding it are plural. However, this change would still not make choice A grammatically correct. The correct idiomatic expression is seem + infinitive (to). Without that, B is not grammatically correct.
D is therefore the correct answer.
