pick (D) by POE

(A) (B) (C) out - "so" can serve as conjunction by itself

(E) out - "as" means "because" when used as conjunction, distorting what the sentence is suposed to mean

Please tell me how you can rule out "flatly" without knowing that the meaning is different from "flat"; I mean is it a question of meaning or is there any grammar I didn't see here ?

you need an adjective(flat) how to arrange the clothing(noun) rather than an adverb(flatly)......

I initially picked A but then I looked down and got influenced with number of folks picking B or D. Heck, i'm gonna stick with my guns...

Why A?

Because flatly (an adverb) modifying a verb 'pack'

OA plz?

Hmm.. I am really confused.
The approach that I took is as follows. Please let me know where I am wrong.

First I had to choose between flat (adjective) and flatly(adverb). I choosed flatly. Reason: Flatly is modifying a verb which is "packed". So B and D is eliminated.
But most of the guys are mentioning B as the answer..:(
