imo D.

malar,

if you remove middlemen , you will get following:

the contact is affected over a board surface instead of a series of regularly spaced points.(A)
- it does not join the second part so well with is affected.
the contact is affected over a board surface rather than at a series of regularly spaced points.(D)

Sounds better...

1. "instead of" is generally followed by a noun ."rather than" can be followed by anything.
2. "rather than" is used to compare clauses.

Agreed that it is D.
But why not B? "as opposed to"
