I say the answer is C.

The sentence is trying to convey that the attorney general has two roles: (1) he advises the President; and (2) as administers to a department of 50K employees. So in addition to (1) he also does (2).

"In addition to being the chief legal adviser to the President, the attorney general administers a department of nearly 50,000 employees."

Not sure how to explain..

'Also' in the beginning of the sentence is not good construction. Try to find sentences that begin with 'also'.

'In addition to' is better and right
