OA is B

The SC is testing for Idiom - same to X as to Y

The "would" in D is redundant. Hence D is incorrect.

I messed up .Marked (D).Ok if we say
X would appear same to Y as to Z
X would appear same to Y as it would to Z

"It" here is redundant.But i dont understand "would " plays a role in tense agreement.Why that is not required.
