"so that" and "so as to" are the correct idioms. i prefer A) because its more concise.

C) is out because it distorts the meaning. "...changed his appearance to travel...". this sounds like he changed how he travelled.

It says that he changed his appearence to travel, if it had to be like he changed to travel, then the meaning can be construed like what you said but as is I find it difficult to eliminate C

It is D. a clear cut.

C - changes the meaning.,
A - "so as to" is a BIG NO in GmatLand!!!! You never ever use so as to , all together... so X...as to .... is correct usage.

"so as to" basically means.."so that he can"

When A is gramatically correct - looking at other options is a sin ;-)

I look to the experts for reasoning (if any)

Since "Without being recognised" is there so "C' is not the right choice.

Would go for 'D'
