Hi Dont u think that we any ways need "that" after the underlined portion. (i mean i agree with what u say bout certainity and uncertainty)
so its just another reason for D to be eliminated, coz it does not contain "that" after the underlined portion.

Even though Americans may complain that jury duty disrupts their lives and that the jury selection process can be long and tedious, most agree that there is no alternative to this procedure that would ensure the right of those charged with crimes to a jury of their
After carefully analysis of the structure of teh sentence I realised " that is used as a modifier and it lends a parrael structure -
that jury duty disrupts their lives and that the jury selection process can be long and tedious.
If you pose a question - "what do the AMericans complain about?" - that binds "jury duty disrupts their lives" and "the jury selection process can be long and tedious" to the sentence.
