Confused between D and E!!!
I pick E ... My guess is "by" is elliptic
I am skeptical about D because of the way it uses "such as"
Can someone clarify whether it is idiomatic to split "such as" as is done in D?

I think "in accordance with" is the correct usage.
Ex:
The film was shot according to a plan
The film was shot in accordance with censorship guidelines

Correct me if I'm wrong

I think it's A. Such as clearly welcomes the list....
and according to is idiomatic....

D I think is wrong. 'such a variety of criteria as' sounds wrong...

A.
Not sure if "such a variety of criteria as" is correct or wrong.
But "screen something according to some criteria" seems better than "screen something in accordance with criteria".
