I will go with E. We need the second part after semi-colon to stand on its own.

True, however, the use of 'however' is to connect two sentences, here we need to have two separate sentences.

Now, its between A and C

A sounds better than C cause option C has a pronoun problem 'it' could refer to Eye or wavelenth.

Best option A.

OA Please?

The OA: A. infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength is 0.1 millimeters is too long to be registered by the eye - does this mean that the sentence construction with the double "is" in bold emphasis is correct?
