I feel like there is an "it" missing in answer choice A.

A. it is so difficult to navigate that is considered a serious safety hazard
B. it is of such difficulty to navigate that is seriously considered a safety hazard
C. so difficult is it to navigate as to be considered a serious safety hazard
D. such is its difficulty to navigate, it is considered a serious safety hazard
E. there is so much difficulty in navigation that is considered a serious hazard in safety

None of the answer choices is viable.
In the OA, the red portion is missing a subject, as follows:
Larson Pass is so difficult to navigate that IT is considered a safety hazard.
What is the source of this SC?

May I ask you why C is wrong? I ended up choosing C over A, because A was missing "it" and C seems to align with the correct usage of so.... as to.

Why is option A correct. Do we not need an "it" after "that" in the option?
