(A) infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength—0.1 millimeters—is too long to be registered by the eye
(B) however, the wavelength of infrared radiation—0.1 millimeters—is too long to be registered by the eye making it invisible
(C) infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength—0.1 millimeters—is too long for the eye to register it
(D) however, because the wavelength of infrared radiation is 0.1 millimeters, it is too long for the eye to register and thus invisible

Its A
---------------------------------------

(B) however, the wavelength of infrared radiation—0.1 millimeters—is too long to be registered by the eye making it invisible
>> In is unclear whether the pronoun it refers to infrared radiation or the wavelength
(C) infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength—0.1 millimeters—is too long for the eye to register it
>> In is unclear whether the pronoun it refers to infrared radiation or the wavelength
(D) however, because the wavelength of infrared radiation is 0.1 millimeters, it is too long for the eye to register and thus invisible
[color=green]>> too awkward.

(E) however, infrared radiation has a wavelength of 0.1 millimeters that is too long for the eye to register, thus making it invisible
>> awkward and the same pronoun problem
