I am also tempted for 'C'.

Correct idiom is So X as to constitute Y - I will go for 'A'.

What is the OA.

so unrealistic as to constitute what one scholar calls an "artificial face."
(A) so unrealistic as to constitute
(B) so unrealistic they constituted ( 'that' missing here )
(C) so unrealistic that they have constituted ( have is not required cause main verb is past tense.)
(D) unrealistic enough so that they constitute ( enough is redundant if we put so b4 unrealistic .. so it is wordy sentence)
(E) unrealistic enough so as to constitute (same as D )
