Please explain the structure and reason for the answer.
The answer is A, but I don't really know how to describe why. It just sounds best. It's more than acceptable to say phrases like <object> was so <descriptor> when speaking colloquially as a means of emphasis.
c and d has a clumsy sentence structure with the use of fearsomeness... out.
we prefer the use of 'a hitter' rather than 'the hitter' in this sentence. b is out.
e has redundant use of 'much' and the unnescessary use of progressive 'coming'
