A)
B and D "thought to be of as" compare briny solution to a salinity level. So out they are.
E is out because it uses ...the same.... like... the idiom is: the same.... as...
C is wrong because the briny solution cannot be thought to be about the same salinity but should rather be thought to be of about the same salinity. Of makes a link of relativity between the salinity of the briny solution and the salinity of the primordial sea.

What is wrong with D ?
It is just "thought of as" .
Is there a difference between "from which" and "from where" ?

The official answer is A.

In relation to this primordial sea, which one is better "from where" or "from which"? Or is just the same to use either? :?

This is one of those questions that must be hell on nonnative speakers.

People deserve to know why "from where" is wrong, and I can't explain it because I just take it for granted...
