D is missing "so", which slightly changes the meaning of the sentnce (e.i. not as annoying).

Ya i understood there is slight meaning change in D.

Actual contenders are :
B. His standing right in front of the screen always was rather annoying
D. It was annoying that he always stood in front of the screen

Let me try to break down sentence please correct me if i'm wrong

D. It was annoying that he always stood in front of the screen

Here Red is main clause. ( Verb - was annoying)
Blue is subordinate clause (verb - stood)

Coming back to OA

B. His standing right in front of the screen always was rather annoying

standing - Modifier modifies "His" pronoun
was annoying - verb
His - Subject
in front of the screen - Prepositional phrase

Is my understanding correct???

And one basic doubt.. In all these choice there is no actual noun...
Everything are Pronoun, which means there is no proper main Clause..
Is this possible in GMAT ???
